Exciting plans at the VHS
Exciting plans are underway to expand and improve our exhibitions in 2014 so that we can offer you a better experience. While we update gallery layouts, display cases, AV technology, and internet connectivity, much of our exhibition space will be under construction. Soon, you will hear more about the transformation of our spaces into even more vibrant, accessible, and engaging gateways to America’s past. During this time, you may connect with the 8.5 million objects in our collection through the library, programs, and website to learn more about the unparalleled story of Virginia. Learn about the Story of Virginia campaign!
