If you want to understand Virginia's history, plan on spending 2-3 hours in their exhibit- in fact, I would skip straight to it so you don't run out of time and have to hurry through the end. An in-depth and introspective view of Virginia's history from Native American period through the 1970's with a surprisingly critical view of how Virginia's fall from glory after the Civil War and subsequent failure to keep pace with societal developements kept it as a backwater till the 1970's. Visually impressive with many, many artifacts and excellant explanations and exhibition. We came planning to spend an hour or so and left after 3 only because the museum was closing. I would put this on my don't miss list of things to do in historical Richmond
