We recently took a Saturday trip to the museum to see a special showing of Chihuly's blown glass. While that exhibit was rather a dissapointment the museum is world-class. Having been to castles, museums, galleries and other arts and historical venues from the Smithsonian to Budapest the VMFA houses some of the most amazing and beautiful paintings, tiles, sculptures, carvings and related displays you will find anywhere. The museum is spotlessly clean, well mapped and easily navigated. The docents are friendly and informed and the admission is free. Having lived here for over 30 years I am embarrassed to say this was our first visit but certainly not our last. The only criticism would be the price of eating there. Ridiculously expensive for what you get but it balances out considering the free entrance fee. We'll be making this a regular weekend outing from now on.
