This place is an amazing gem and it’s free! We kept our multigenerational family busy and happy for hours! Quality and accessibility, indoor and outdoor features and top notch art in one venue!

This magnificent, beautiful museum is open to all at no cost. The current Napoleon exhibition does require tickets, but it is well worth the modest cost. It is fascinating and timely. Go!

Living in Virginia 30+ years, knew about the Museum, never visited. Thanks to my daughter, finally visited the Terra Cotta Warriors and Napoleon exhibits. Really enjoyed it and the rest of the museum very classy and well put together. Can’t wait to see the future...More

Great fun viewing the Napoleon exhibit with Grandchildren ages 4-10. Loved the red room most of all.

The VMFA consistantly provides unique and enjoyable exhibits and events. Take advantage of everything they offer, including happy hours in the garden and delicious lunches at the Best cafe, as well as yummy cocktails with a view upstairs in Amuse bar & restaurant.

Not sure about the open time. It should be posted on the web site. We had tickets during the week when they were not busy and they allowed us to go in early.

We were able to enter the exhibit 30 minutes before our set time so I doubt I would be a problem.

I would give it at least an hour. If you have a particular interest in the other items, such as the gold and other jewelry, household furnishing, etc., plan on longer.
