Museum
“Once upon a mid-night dreary ... Before you go, pick up a copy of Silverman's biography of Edgar Allan Poe ( or read the first few pages of the beside copy in our studio). You won't put it down and you won't miss the Poe Museum. In fair weather, don't miss the Poe Museum's weekly ":Unhappy Hour" on Thursdays for drinks in their ancient, eerily enchanting boxwood courtyard. The Poe museum collection is housed in the oldest residential property in Richmond, a charm of great gray stones, mortar, and slate. ”

“The ICA is new addition to Richmond. Check the website because the exhibitions are always changing. Admission is free but it's in an area where parking can be challenging. I suggest Uber, or the Pulse bus, or be sure to mind the parking meter. The ICA is in the Gallery District Downtown. If you go it may be fun to plan an evening of gallery hopping and drinks and dining. The 1st Friday of every month many galleries host opening parties. ”

“Wrought from the ruins of the Tredegar Ironworks factory, producer Confederate munitions during the Civil War, the American Civil War Museum is a tour-de-force. Too much to take in during a single visit, it is a life-long learning center. ”
