Hurray for Richmond offering this wonderful collection of art! Every gallery has a wealth of beautiful pieces that one would not expect to find in Richmond. I particularly enjoy the Modern Art Gallery, which is frequently replenished. The museum also houses great performances and events ('Bubbling Brown Sugar', Art After Hours!, Jumpin' ...) My only qualm with the VMFA is the creapy guards that seem to follow us every time we go. No one trusts ""kids these days"". :D

I love, love, love this museum. There's something so relaxing and indulgent about wandering through the rooms--and the Faberge eggs are amazing. A bonus: the museum's Jumpin music series that takes place in the gardens every summer is a must-see.
