Richmond, Virginia was given its name by William Byrd II who, upon looking out at the James River from atop Church Hill, thought the region looked a bit like Richmond-upon-Thames in Surrey County, England.
Virginia Capitol Building: Inside the white, columned state capitol building, designed by Thomas Jefferson to resemble a first-century Roman temple in France, is the only sculpture of George Washington produced in his lifetime. If you’re interested in history, this is the place for you as you’re able to see statues of many people which played a big part in America some way or the other. Also, people who love to take pictures are able to enjoy the beautiful architecture and can walk to the Library of Congress to enjoy more amazing angles to take photos of. This building, in addition to being the oldest state capitol, was the capitol of the confederacy. Eight of the US Presidents originated from Virginia and are duly recognized. This is a fantastic museum type dedication to our nation’s beginning and the Civil War. Beautiful park like setting with the oldest governor’s mansion on site.
Capitol Square Park: Capitol Square in Richmond is an oasis in the middle of Downtown Richmond. Full of history this park gives you the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and view the historic capitol designed by Thomas Jefferson and the many monuments that surround it. The Governor of VA and family still live in the house adjacent to the Capitol.
The White House and Museum of the Confederacy: The White House and Museum of the Confederacy are located in downtown Richmond’s historic Court End neighborhood, just a few blocks from Capitol Square. Guided tours of Jefferson Davis’ executive mansion leave from the Museum lobby throughout the day and typically last around 45 minutes. Three floors of exhibits in the Museum chronicle the war years through the personal belongings of Confederate leaders like Robert E. Lee as well as those of common soldiers and citizens on the home-front. The White House was interesting, but the real gem is the museum itself. We would describe the museum as a collection of artifacts rather than an educational experience as with the American Civil War museum at Tredegar Iron works. We would recommend visiting both museums for a full experience and understanding. The museum collection was well presented. The exhibit on Pickett’s Charge is especially moving. The letters home are poignant. If you’re into history, this is well worth your time!
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts: VMFA Arts is a top comprehensive US art museum with more than 5,000 years of art from around the world. VMFA is open 365 days a year and general admission is always free. The Wall Street Journal recently stated that VMFA is now a “two day museum.” This museum is free. Beautiful campus and great collections. The Art Deco and Art Nouveau exhibits are great, and if you like paintings of horses, this is your place. Very nice American gallery and Faberge exhibit too. Something for everyone.
Edgar Allan Poe Museum: Illustrations of the famous poem “The Raven” and numerous other artifacts surrounding the life of this great American author, the father of the psychological horror story, are housed in a series of buildings, including Richmond’s oldest. It is a small museum that will not take more than an hour to see everything but it gives a good account of Poe’s life in a rather fun and quirky way. In addition, there is a scientific section and a room full of art work related to his stories.
You can fly into Richmond or DC. and rent a car. Either way TravelKatz is ready to help make this trip a fantastic vacation for you and your family. Give us a call at 352-277-7300
