Virginia Museum Of Fine Arts - Review
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, with its recent multi-billion dollar expansion, easily makes it to the top ten comprehensive museums of the nation, if not higher! Richmond’s pride and joy showcases exhibits that span over 5000 years of mankind. Getting down to listing the museum’s permanent displays is an exhaustive task; some of the famed displays however, include the second largest collection of Faberge eggs collection after Russia, art from the Indian sub-continent and Tibet, antiquities from China, Greece, Africa and South America etc, and works of art by some well renowned artists like Monet, Van Gogh, Matisse, Degas and Picasso to name a few.

Virginia Museum Of Fine Arts, Richmond Reviews
Their permanent exhibits are great and FREE! You can't beat it. They also do a great job of curating interesting rotating exhibits. Definitely look into a membership. It's well worth the investment. Consider this spot for a place to relax and read a book (outside on the lawn), have a meeting (in the cafe) or enjoy a nice meal (Amuse is one of the most underrated dining options in the city). Take a look at the calendar because they are constantly planning fun events from live music to cultural celebrations.
Beautiful Museum. Got to wait out several tornadoes in their basement when we recently visited. Was disappointed with the Native American exhibit. Being right in the heart of Virginia I expected a larger exhibit. But the Museum is beautiful. That entire area of town just was so awesome.
This museum is like the best museum of Virginia for art! not only do they carry art from local artist but there is art from other time periods like from Egypt Rome you name it it's in this Museum! And the people working there or are really nice and can guide you in the right direction if you're trying to look for an exhibition or or a specific piece. If you haven't been to the museum yet you should go at least once after all it's free! 5/5 Stars ⭐
Magical. That's the best way I can describe my experience visiting this museum. Huge variety of exhibits for free. We could have spent hours and hours here. Next time I will remember to leave my bag in the car though, because the staff had to follow me around in some parts of the museum. Understandable, but made me feel uncomfortable. We had lunch at the cafe and it was average, clean, and not expensive.
An amazing museum in Richmond. The permanent exhibits are worth a visit a few times a year. But the special/visiting exhibits they book are amazing. The Napoleon exhibit is stunning, the variety of pieces, the displays of the exhibits are breathtaking. It would be difficult to list my favorites, there are too many to list. The permanent exhibits I recommend highly. The Tiffany Lamps, Faberge' Eggs and English Silver are my favorites. Don't miss out, visit the museum. On top of all the fabulous art, the EMUSE restaurant has beautiful views and very tasty food. There are other restaurants on site, live music (jazz) some nights and always wonderful events, classes and educational opportunities. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Spend a few minutes or hours it will enrich your life. Enjoy!.
