Virginia Museum of History & Culture: Re-imagined and reopened with 50% more exhibition space
After a project investing $30 million to renovate the Virginia Museum of History & Culture (VMHC), it has reopened. The Richmond-based museum underwent the most extensive and transformative renovation in the institution’s nearly 200-year history, according to a museum press release. And the museum, which houses over 9 million objects, is offering a dramatically renewed, innovative and welcoming experience that presents history "through a fresh and accessible lens."
