Having visited Holocaust-related museums and memorials in Washington DC, South Beach Fla, Warsaw Poland and Auschwitz itself, I can honestly say that I found this one to be very engaging and moving.

Agecroft Hall & Gardens
#4 of 31 Museums in Richmond
Inside the museum, our guide, Jane, was extremely knowledgeable and peppered the tour with interesting facts about the museum contents and the Tudor period.
This is a fascinating museum in a rather high-end neighborhood off the Carytown area of Richmond; elements of the house were shipped over in the Twenties from an English Tudor house going back to Henry VII's reign.

Science Museum of Virginia

So many interactive stations, everything in working order (parents who go to science museums know how rare that is), and even housed in an impressive historic train station.
Although we live about 1.5 hrs away, we decided on the membership as it has many reciprocal museums in the area we live (Hampton Roads).
Edgar Allan Poe Museum
#8 of 31 Museums in Richmond
Every one of Poe's museums that I have visited do the perfect job of filling that little spot in your heart that needs the dark side.
A wonderfully detailed depiction of the author's life, career, and tragic and mysterious final days, this charming museum is clearly a labor of love to preserve any and every aspect of the life of one of the great...

I have a grandson who loves the Civil War and is dedicated to having me take him to ALL the associated battlefields and museums.

While there are two other kids museums in Richmond, the one on broad st is best; especially with the bonus of being right next to the science museum.
She explored every exhibit and LOVED her time at the museum.
