  • I was able to walk here from my boardwalk hotel and it is in a very pretty location. The staff was pleasant, the building is beautiful- just very peaceful and sets a lovely mood. Their current exhibit...  read more »

  • Dear Moca, After much thought I’ve decided to write this letter about the most recent Moca Wine event. I’ve attended this event for years and long before the name became what it is today. I am a local resident of Virginia Beach and attend many functions in the community. This event was a disappointment on so many levels! It was overcrowded, people stepping all over each other. There wasn’t any place to sit your glass to eat. The Cabernet had run out early in the night and the rest of the wine was of poor quality. I purchased the ticket to have 2 bites of food and 1 glass of wine, unacceptable! I was with a group of 8 so we stayed until the end. We were threatened by the short chubby cop from the Sheriff's department to head out the door now or face arrest!
  • Nice small museum. They had a high fructose exhibit up with a good variety of paintings,sculptures and mixed media exhibits. Lots crammed into a small venue. Good way to spend some time if you're in the area and like art
  • There are discounts for students, AAA, and seniors which is nice. It's a pretty small museum, but the art work was amazing.
  • This is a great museum! The staff is knowledgeable and the museum often hosts great artist talks and classes!
  • The high fructose exhibit was on display when I visited, awesome stuff
