  • Being new to Richmond, I liked seeing the history of the city. The exhibits were like the best 'This American Life' episodes-- engaging stories about interesting people.

  • Fantastic, little jewel of a museum focusing on Richmond's vast history. Along with museum entry, one is able to tour the John Wickham house, an 1812 beauty with fantastic examples of period interior painting. Katie was a fantastic guide. We had a wonderful and informative time learning all aspects of RVA history.
  • Eating in the garden outside is lovely
  • Loved it
  • I went with my sons second grade class. It was very well told. The display was excellent. I learned a lot. All the kids were very involved. If you can entertain 13 7 year Olds for an hour you have my vote. The house was amazing and in good repair. The tour guide was very entertaing. I recommend anyone to visit, I'm going back for a longer look.
  • Such a gem in Richmond, and the only place you can get a great comprehensive history of the city
