Virginia Museum of Fine Art

200 North Boulevard
Richmond, VA 23220


Multiple structures are combined together to form the Richmond's Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. A large central hall in the newer structure acts as a central space to go up, down, right or left in order to visit the different halls. The third floor contains a good selection of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, the second floor with separate halls in both the old original Museum building and the newer building, spanning eras of art from ancient India, Egypt, Greece and Rome up to the pop-art and post-modernism of the contemporary art scene, with in between eras covered also, with emphasis on Virginia artworks and Virginia history including the native American tribes and the experience of African-Americans.

A vast under-floor contains traveling exhibits and is assessable, as is most of the museum, by elevator or the networks of stairs. A cafe and an abundance of outside areas make the entire Virginia Museum of Fine Arts a visually fascinating Richmond institution.
