If you are a true admirer of ancient, modern or contemporary art, this is the place for you to be. I am not a connoisseur myself but still I was mesmerized by some of the portraits that were in display. Apart from portraits there are furnitures , small and large sculptures all around. I mostly love the Egyptian gallery. You can see a mummy there as well. I will truly recommend visiting this place once, if you live in Virginia. Note: There are restaurants inside the property so you can start your day early and don't have to think about eating your breakfast or lunch anywhere outside.
Always great place to visit. The main galleries are free so you can enjoy a quick visit or a longer amble through galleries and grounds. Special exhibits cost but are worth the price due to the unique and well curated shows, usually of limited engagement across the country.
Best museum in Richmond. I have gone here innumerable times, and bring friends and family from out of town here if the weather isn't good enough for outdoor activities. Their happy hour / wine night is perfect to go to in the summer and sit out on their lawn and enjoy drinks.
Historical fresh cultural art. Floral designs which are breathtaking. Cafes on site. Multiple levels which are easily accessible. Family and kids activities. A sense of long-lasting preservation of our worlds most precious artistry pieces.
A great medium sized museum with a fine American and European impressionistic painting collection. They have a good selection of Singer Sargent paintings. The recreated Rockefeller bedroom with original furniture is a highlight. Also, they have an excellent Cafe with a view over looking the grounds.
