Traveling Exhibitions

A major goal of the Virginia Historical Society is to make our collections and exhibitions available throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.  Currently we are featuring three traveling exhibitions: An Artist’s Story: Civil War Drawings by Edwin ForbesAn American Turning Point:  The Civil War in Virginia, and Civil War Journey: The Maps and Sketches of Private Robert Sneden.  Go explore these powerful exhibitions at select venues throughout the state and beyond.

Please note: Traveling exhibitions are Virginia Historical Society exhibitions located at other venues.  These exhibitions are not on display at the Virginia Historical Society.
