Partners in History

Open Now

In 2019, the VMHC and the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia (BHMVA) began a long-term partnership to share collections and resources to connect more people to the story of Virginia. The Partners in History exhibition explores how two historical organizations can collaborate to offer a more complete understanding of our past as a source of inspiration for the future.
