Virginia HouseJoin the staff for a behind-th-scenes look at Virginia House. Visit seldom-seen areas of the museum and enjoy a close look at the collections of Alexander and Virginia Weddell. The house, preserved much the same as it was when the Weddells resided there from 1928 to 1948, includes English and Spanish antiques, silk draperies, oriental carpets, and fine silver and china. After the tour, guests are welcome to visit the more than eight acres of grand gardens at Virginia House. Programs last approximately one hour. The program is free to VHS members and $6 for nonmembers. Reservations are required.
