“Collect, Preserve, and Exhibit”

It is a state-supported, privately endowed educational institution created for the benefit of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Its purpose is to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret art, to encourage the study of the arts, and thus to enrich the lives of all. In the midst of the Great Depression, on January 16, 1936, Virginia’s political and business leaders bravely demonstrated their faith in the future and their belief in the value of art by opening the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. The English Renaissance-style headquarters building designed by Peebles and Ferguson Architects of Norfolk barely hinted at the innovative mandate given to the fledgling institution: the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts was to serve as the state’s flagship art museum and as the headquarters for an educational network that would bring the best of world art, past and present, to every corner of the commonwealth.

At this museum you’ll discover rotating exhibits featuring everything from pottery to oil paintings. You might even find an educational lecture or a children’s art class on the itinerary during your visit.

I highly recommend grabbing a bite to eat at the museum while there. The restaurant features upscale Americana foods, cocktails, and a pleasant atmosphere to top your cultural experience.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Richmond, VA!
