The earliest history museums had little actual history to draw on and instead padded exhibits with wildly speculative displays about how dinosaurs would be elected to Congress by the year 2000. See how far we’ve come with today’s Groupon to Valentine Richmond History Center.

Choose from Three Options

  • For $8, you get two museum admissions (up to a $16 value). Children 6 or younger receive free admission.
  • For $25, you get a one-year individual membership (a $50 value).

Memberships bestow holders with free museum entrance and parking, free entry to the John Marshall House and the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, and reciprocal admission to select National Museums. Members dole out complimentary guest passes to chums, attend special events, or access the museum archives by appointment to exhaustively research Richmond’s 400-year-old history and determine whether the city was settled by aliens. A 10% museum-wide discount grants members cheaper eats from the café and purchases at Valentine Richmond History Center’s shop of gifts and books. And members receive additional discounts on one of the more than 350 museum-run guided and walking tours each year.

The Valentine

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, The Valentine has inspired visitors to explore Virginia's yesteryears for more than a century, employing exhibitions, tours, research, special events, and educational programs. More than 1.7 million household items, industrial artifacts, and pieces of artwork adorn permanent and changing exhibitions to expound on past lifestyles. Guests enjoy entry to the Wickham House, a National Historic Landmark peppered with artifacts from its prominent former inhabitants. The renovated Edward V. Valentine Sculpture Studio details Valentine's artistic maturation and evolution beyond macaroni portraits by displaying his original works and tools. The museum also invites budding scholars to survey the historic Court End neighborhood as they exhaustively research Richmond's 400-year-old history and determine whether the city was settled by aliens. In addition to this, The Valentine offers a myriad of tours, which can be enjoyed by foot, bus, or with a favorite dog.
