A Message About Rentals During Construction

While the museum is under construction until Spring 2022, Virginia House, the stately home donated to the VMHC by Virginia and Alexander Weddell located just a short drive away from the museum campus in Richmond’s Windsor Farms neighborhood, is open and ready for your use. 

Please note that weekends at Virginia House (Friday through Sunday) are currently booked through the end of 2021, and from March to November 2022. Although weekend dates are not available during those periods, we are happy to accommodate small weekdays events and photography sessions.

Rentals at Virginia House

Nestled on a hillside overlooking the James River and surrounded by nearly eight acres of grounds and gardens designed by Charles Freeman Gillette, it is the perfect backdrop for portraits, retreats, dinners, ceremonies, and receptions.

Preserved with original woodwork and antiques, the house itself maintains its original character while offering modern amenities necessary for large gatherings and special occasions.


Host an Event at the Museum

The Virginia Museum of History & Culture, centrally located on N Arthur Ashe Boulevard, offers a variety of unique spaces for ceremonies, receptions, and other special events. Our events team will work with you to find the right combination of indoor or outdoor locations across the property to suit events of almost any size. Museum spaces can accommodate anywhere from 50 to 150 guests.
