The Virginia Museum of History & Culture is dedicated to presenting exhibitions that interpret both broad and focused themes from Virginia's story, highlighting rare and everyday artifacts from our collection of over nine million artifacts and those on loan through partnerships with fellow cultural institutions. Past exhibitions have featured a wide variety of topics from more challenging ones on race and gender to more lighthearted looks into entertainment and art. A selection of our past exhibitions is listed below. Contact us with any questions about other prior exhibitions not listed.

Intersecting History Museum Crawl
Organized by Initiatives of Change USA, Intersecting History is a coalition of museums and community historians that seek to intersect diverse histories to form a more just and inclusive public memory in an increasingly polarized society. The premier feature of the coalition is the annual “museum crawl” where attendees visit participating locations to explore new narratives they may not typically experience regarding race, justice, and public memory.
All In Together
The VMHC was excited to partner with Virginia artists Hamilton Glass and Matt Lively on this collaborative project that featured multiple murals around Richmond showcasing the creativity and resilience of Virginians.
