The bread and wine were unusually good. The bread was made on site by the pastry chef and the wine of the day a Beaujolais Blanc. Yummy! We toured the Jim... More

A visit to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts always reminds us how fortunate we are to have this asset in our community. Over the Christmas holidays our family, ranging in years from 64 to 21, enjoyed an enriching afternoon at the VMFA viewing the fascinating present exhibition on the influence Edvard Munch ("The Scream") had on the work of...

It's a beautiful Museum, inside and out. Fantastic exhibits, expertly and artistically curated, soaring ceilings, glass elevators, great gift shop....and casual and fine dining, too! I've visited the VMFA for almost 50 years and it's gone from a relatively small, charming place to a world-class Museum.
