  • A very informative place. Give yourself a few hours to walk the halls and learn.
  • Great places to bring your whole family. Interactive entertainment and Virginia history thrown in.
  • Beautiful, and informative ( ok, it is history- so sometimes the beauty is subjective or hidden). Wonderful static exhibits, and they do a great job rotating exhibits, also. If you are a student remember your id! There is a discount. Overall, I think everyone should check it out.
  • Wonderful, just wonderful. I have a membership so it's quite a treat to go every month or so to see the new exhibits! Also, the awesome discounts in the gift shop :)
  • I did not want to see an old pipe and a bell
