Rarely can you come across a museum that is open 365 days per year so this museum is a real treat. Located off of 200 North Boulevard in Richmond, Virginia, this is definitely a museum you will want to add to your museum bucket list.
During The Great Depression, January of 1936 to be exact, the debut of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond made its appearance. Although times were dark back then, the business and political leaders of Virginia at the time wanted to give the community hope that a better and brighter future was around the corner. So although some might have thought the timing was off, perhaps the timing was just right to open this compelling museum.
From Angelica Kauffmann, to Hubert Robert, to Beauford Delaney, and even Jamini Roy, chances are there is something unique here for each visitor's interest.
And do you want to know what the best part of this museum is? That aside from the fact that they are open 365 days per year, admission is also free.
