  • Always cool things to see at The Valentine! The history of the City of Richmond
  • Oh well, just go for it, depends on tastes but it was fine to me.
  • Great museum to get an overall local history of Richmond and all of its architecture and culture.
  • The great museum near the MCV campus. They give you the history of the Valentine family. It tells the story of the Valentine's on how they help Richmond become the great city as it is today
  • Museum and adjacent house both offer fascinating insights into the Richmond of yesterday and the Richmond we know now. Accommodating, knowledgeable staff and thorough exhibits.
