Get a Glimpse of Hollywood at the Virginia Museum in Richmond Virginia

Real Estate Agent with Piedmont Real Estate 0225202286

If you like films and Hollywood, you likely will enjoy a current traveling exhibit called Hollywood Costume now being shown at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond Virginia.  This spectacular exhibit is organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and currently is being shown here in Virginia's state capital through Feb. 17, 2014.


How many of you can withstand being in cold weather?  Earlier this afternoon I decided to go ahead and take the plunge outdoors by walking to the museum--around a half mile away from my home.  At around 2 PM, the outdoor temperature was 19 degrees (Fahrenheit), up from 10 degrees at 9 AM.  By the time I walked home, it already had risen to 21 degrees, the high temperature for us here today.  Fortunately, once inside the museum, the temperature was much warmer and more comfortable.


Even though it was colder than usual here today, I highly recommend visiting the Hollywood Costume exhibit at the VMFA before it leaves.  Nearly a full century of cinema is being represented at this special exhibit.  


Of course, you can avoid a lot of time in the cold by driving a car or taking the bus or a cab instead of walking.  If you're looking for something to enjoy indoors, then visiting the VMFA would be a great option.  Also, if you already happen to be a museum member or have a child age 6 or under, the Hollywood Costume exhibit is absolutely free!  Active duty military and their families also can enjoy the exhibit free.


Otherwise, here are the costs to see this special exhibit:

1)  $20 for adults

2)  $16 for adult groups of 10 or more, and

3)  $10 for youth (ages 7 - 17) and students with a student ID


Below are some photos relating to the current special exhibit.  Other photos are part of the permanent collection that the VMFA has.

Dolores and I enjoyed this exhibit. We are annual members at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and try to see all of the major exhibits.

Hi Andrew,

This looks like a fun place to go and see the Hollywood cosutmes. I live in Southern California and Hollywood is such a popular place for tourists and residents both. I love your pictures.
