Banner lectures are excellent. I hope they will continue to offer some of these during evening hours to allow people to attend who work during the day and cannot always take a long lunch hour.

Please try to have more temporary show that appeal to every day people. Some that might be fun. A few shows have been good but need explanation to fully appreciate.

The Behind the Scenes tour about Philip Knox Sneden's diary was really great! I was really impressed with the facility to conserve and the staff was friendly and very informative!

From Our Editors

Founded in 1831, the same year chief justice John Marshall became its first president and former president James Madison its first honorary member, the Virginia Historical Society began amassing books, manuscripts, and historical objects to preserve the state's past. After moving its collections throughout the state during the Civil War, the society finally settled into the Lee House—the wartime home of General Robert E. Lee's family—in 1893 before moving to the Center of Virginia History in 1959.

The society showcases the state's heritage through long-term and temporary exhibitions such as The Story of Virginia, an American Experience, which contains artifacts from 16,000 years of Virginian history (from prehistory to the present) displayed in 10,000 square feet of galleries. Outside of its museum walls, Virginia Historical Society enlightens the public with educational programs and resources, publications, and rare nickels that caught Thomas Jefferson with his eyes closed.
