Nice comparative exhibit!

My husband, friends and I attended the Jasper Johns Edvard Munch show and were truly surprised as to how we all absorbed so much from the show. It was very impressive!

Easy to navigate. The permanent exhibits are on par with the NYC MET. Check out the life size Calligula statue, one of only two in the world. There are two restaurants - one is a quick cafe with an indoor & outdoor section that overlooks the water. The other restaurant requires a reservation.

The VMFA has a surprisingly good collection for a city this size, and its new wing is beautiful. The museum is in a lovely part of town, full of beautiful houses, great shopping, and terrific restaurants. Definitely worth a visit.

Don't miss the outdoor sculptures including those by Chihuly and Henry Moore- well laid out, spacious and worth repeated... More

My girlfriend and I visited the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to view the Kehinde Wiley exhibition September 2016. Mr Wiley's exhibits were astounding, thought provoking and a conversation starter. The Museum is serene, yet has a feeling of excitement. You talk in whispers and move through the exhibits in awe, waiting in anticipation to share your good feelings with... More

Visited the place on the last day day before flying back to Thailand and didn't regret at all. Exhibition was great. We spent a couple hours there. Too bad it was raining so didn't visit outside exhibition.
