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.

Customer Reviews

My friend and I went on the Hollywood Cemetery Highlights tour. It was fantastic! Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and a great teacher. I would definitely go again and recommend it to others.

Gave the Groupon tour to friend as a birthday present. We all went together. It was a good tour and different than the first tour we took. I imagine each docent emphasizes items they are most interested in his/her self.
