We are currently open to a limited number of visitors Fridays, Saturdays, and Sunday. As we continue to welcome visitors, we consider many variables and take into account state and city guidelines, collaboration with VCU, and ongoing discussions with our own staff and museum peers around the world. We recognize that circumstances may change at any moment. But we are committed to serving the public under the safest possible conditions and under new norms, ones to which Richmonders across the city are already accustomed.
