The Story of VirginiaWhat do John’s map, Patrick’s glasses, George’s diary, and Arthur’s racket have in common? They’re all iconic parts of the story of Virginia. Before closing in December 2013, The Story of Virginia, served as a memorable part of any visit to the Virginia Historical Society. Next year we’ll open a redesigned Story of Virginia that will be a more vibrant, accessible, and engaging experience where new memories will be made. Can’t wait? Come behind the scenes and tour the space we’ll transform into the new Story of Virginia and then take a look at a selection of some of the remarkable items to be featured in the new exhibit before they’re all locked away behind Plexiglas.
