  • A great place to bring out of town friends! Located right on the river, it offers great views and pretty walks nearby. I suggest making a day out of touring the museum and nearby Belle Isle and Brown's Island. The museum holds such unique and interesting artifacts in such a beautiful and historic building. I especially loved all the old photographs of various places around the city back then. I only wish they had a student discount!
  • Very good museum. Maybe a bit small, but definitely informative. Of course it is located in a former CSA state, but I guess VA is special. But as always: stay critical with the matter. The small cinema is amazing. The interactive screens are very helpful, too. I would recommend going there.
