Virginia Historical Society

The Virginia Historical Society (VHS)--a privately funded nonprofit organization--collects, preserves, and interprets the Commonwealth's history, linking past with present to inspire future generations.

The galleries are closed for renovation.

Visitors may connect with the 8.5 million objects in the VHS collection through the research library, a variety of programs, and a recently redesigned website to learn more about the unparalleled story of Virginia. Exciting plans are underway to expand and improve VHS exhibitions. The transformation of gallery spaces will create even more vibrant, accessible, and engaging gateways to America's past.

The VHS is located at 428 North Boulevard in Richmond's Museum District. Admission is free. Hours are Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. for the library, museum shop and a variety of programs. The VHS is closed on Sunday.
