Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts 

A new atrium, library, gift shop, café and sculpture garden, along with over 20,000 works of art from Art Nouveau and Art Deco to modern are a visual treat for visitors.

VMFA is also known for its large collection of Fabergé jeweled items, and the museum shop is a treasure trove of historic reproductions of both glittering jewelry and objects d’art. And yes, it’s free too!

You don’t have to spend a bundle to explore Richmond, and if you live within driving distance, it would take you several visits just to see all of the free attractions.

It’s a city full of contrasts… urban and gritty in parts, historic and bucolic in others… all overlaid with a dose of Southern hospitality. The north may have “driven ‘ole Dixie down,” but Richmond has become a thriving, multicultural city with much more to offer than just Civil War history.
