“Great museum”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

The museum is easy to get in and out of with the new parking deck. The exhibits are are excellent - the Fabergé eggs and silver deserve special mention.

“Fine museum”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Really nice museum. The amazing part is that general admission is free. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. The museum store is filled with a wide variety of great things. While in the area, check out the shops on Cary street too.

“Fabulous art museum”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

The VMFA just recently added a huge addition which is fabulous. They have a library, a great gift shop, a cafe and a nice restaurant (Amuse) on 2nd level of new part of museum. There is also a sculpture garden outside. They have frequent special exhibits and their permanent exhibits encompass African Art to 21st Century art and everything in between
