This article is brought by the sexual abuse lawyers of The Museum District. We encourage you to learn more about this significant neighborhood and explore some of its anchor museums.
The Museum District is a neighborhood in the City of Richmond, Virginia. It is named as such because of the museums that anchor the area. Also known as West of the Boulevard, it is bounded by the following:
The neighborhood was once an area of farmland in the 1800s. It wasn't until 1895 to 1940 when the area began to develop. Today, most of the religious facilities, institutional buildings, restaurants and stores are located in the "Devil's Triangle" – the largest business district of the neighborhood. Most of the shopping for residents in The Museum District is done in the adjacent Carytown.

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts was opened in 1936. Owned and managed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, it is a public art museum on North Arthur Ashe Boulevard. As one of the largest art museums in the U.S., its collection includes:
Acquisition of artwork, specific programs and general support are all funded by the state, along with private donations, funds and endowments. In 1955, the 500-seat proscenium Virginia Museum Theatre – now known as the Leslie Cheek Theater – was constructed within the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The hours of operation for the museum are Saturdays through Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m to 9 p.m.
Another anchor for The Museum District, the Virginia Museum of History & Culture sits adjacent to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The 1913 neoclassical building is the headquarters for the Virginia Historical Society that was founded in 1831. In 2018, the headquarters was renamed the Virginia Museum of History and Culture. It offers over 25,000 square feet of exhibition space and features the largest permanent display of Virginia artifacts. The museum is also the only one to have all of Virginia's history under one roof. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., some of the exhibitions on display are Capable, The Story of Virginia, Landscapes of Virginia, Partners in History, The War Horse, and more.
