Maymont is a 100-acre American estate, an extraordinary gift given to the community by James and Sallie Dooley who lived there from 1893 to 1925. Whether strolling in the gardens, touring the mansion or petting a goat, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

A must-do for families. There is no cost for admission. Wear comfortable shoes, and bring your own drinks. There aren't many places to get drinks on site.

This is an older mansion in Richmond. Beautiful example of how a wealthy couple lived. Examples of carriages and autos. Exhibits about the servants and staff as well as the residents. Also has gardens.

So much to do. The barn and animals, the beautiful mansion from the 1900's, the gardens, the indoor facility with the James River exhibition. Children of all ages love Maymont.
