A Message About Rentals During & Beyond the Pandemic

In light of the pandemic we continue to face, events and event planning may have fallen off your radar. Our hope is that with vaccines being actively distributed, there are brighter days and more celebrations ahead. 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. 

Our staff has been nimble throughout 2020 as safety guidelines changed. We have hosted small, socially distanced weddings, receptions and other gatherings, and we are ready to open back up to larger events once it is safe to do so. We realize weddings, meetings, and other parties often take many months to plan, and we hope that you, like our staff, are looking to the future with renewed energy and anticipation of seeing friends and family in person.

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.
