RICHMOND, Va. — There is so much to see and do in central Virginia! Every Tuesday, members of the Virginia This Morning team are sharing a list of six of their favorite things.

The topic changes, but the goal remains the same — to inspire you to try something new!

Looking to be entertained and educated? This week, our team is sharing their favorite museums to explore in Virginia and the D.C. area.

Jessica loves boasting that Richmond has a world-class museum in its backyard. She even had a chance to participate in the overnight experience for the Edward Hopper and the American Hotel exhibition.


2. Jessica Noll, co-host (bonus pick!)

Children’s Museum of Richmond

The museum has been adding fun activities, videos and resources to its blog while doors are temporarily closed. Click here for COVID-19 updates.

National Air and Space Museum

Bill’s choice is located in Washington, D.C. It’s temporarily closed, but you can take a virtual tour through their website now!

Science Museum of Virginia

The museum has been keeping fans entertained from a distance while doors are closed with fun and informative virtual experiences on their website and social media accounts.


5. Stacy Sacra, creative services senior producer

Virginia Museum of History & Culture

This is Stacy’s top pick because he says they consistently have unique exhibits from toys to technology to African American history. He says it’s one of the most educational and entertaining museums in the commonwealth. His runners up? The Roanoke Pinball Museum and The Keystone Truck & Tractor Museum in Colonial Heights.


6. Evanne Armour, associate producer

The Valentine

For all things Richmond history, there’s no better place to go! The Valentine is open with timed ticketing, limited attendance and new safety measures.
