Virginia Center for Architecture

The Virginia Center for Architecture, one of the nation's few museums devoted to the building arts and design, is dedicated to creating understanding of the value, meaning, and influence of built environments in our lives, our communities, and our world. Located in a 1919 27,000-square-foot landmark Tudor Revival mansion at 2501 Monument Ave. in Richmond’s historic Fan District, the Center is open to the public 10 am - 5 pm Tuesday through Friday and 1-5 pm Saturday and Sunday. Exhibitions, programs, and house and neighborhood walking tours are offered throughout the year. The Virginia Center for Architecture Museum Shop features an outstanding array of books and gifts. Suggested donation: $5. For more information, call or visit the Center on the web.
