Very nice art museum which includes some unusual exhibits such as art noveau and South Eastern Asia. We especially enjoyed the Fabrege, Tiffany and silver collections. Be sure to make reservations to eat at Amuse on the 3rd floor. Excellent food, service and setting. Nice gift shop also.

The faberge eggs were wonderful to view, The Eqyptian exhibit was interesting to view. The museum flows well from one exhibit to the next. Cute stuffed animal display at the gift shop! Enjoy!

An absolutely excellent regional museum. They have some very fine quality pieces of many different art periods including American, European and others plus a great Faberge egg collection. They host some spectacular shows, both of their own and getting traveling shows. Open 365 days - wow

Visited to see the recent special exhibition on Napoleon, but found much more to see. The Faberge eggs are stunning, the modern art will challenge your thinking, and the classical paintings are plentiful! If you can, have a meal in the restaurant, Amuse. It has excellent food and service in a modern and airy setting.

Everyone in Richmond should spend at least one Sunday afternoon a year wandering through the VMFA. Even if there weren't spectacular collections to view, there's also a pretty nice cafe to reward yourself afterwards and a beautiful lawn to meander. Not a bad spot for the kids, either.

This art museum does an amazing job presenting all kinds of art to the Richmond community. It has a vast array of ancient, modern, Impressionist, and decorative arts. The traveling exibits are always good. Thursday nights host a Jazz Cafe--always good. The studio school is phenomenal, offering a wide number of classes and workshops. The museum also hosts trips, socials, and fundraisers. And they book for events. Really classy. It's a lot of museum for a small city.

Enjoyed a few hours at the VMFA after we landed in Richmond for our conference. There is lots to see and restaurant on site. It's close to Carytown, safe area with plenty of parking!.

Amazing collection, we only got through about 1/3 of the museum in 2 hours, plenty to see in various art categories

V.M.F.A. has a beautiful exterior garden and pond area which, when we attended had glass works of David Chihuly on display. Inside the gallery were many fine works and exhibits. Once a week on the ground floor in the evening wine etc is served by the glass so you can walk around and enjoy the works as well. Really worth a visit.
