The Virginia Museum of History & Culture, located at 428 N. Arthur Ashe Boulevard in Richmond, reopens in part to the public today.
Some galleries will remain closed while an extensive capital improvement program is underway, a release said.
In partnership with the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, the VMHC is staging an exhibit of artifacts from its partner’s collection. These include a desk used by noted civil rights attorney Oliver W. Hill, and photographs from the 1960s football rivalry between Maggie L. Walker High School and Armstrong High School, both in Richmond.
Also, VMHC will host a ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, July 4, for naturalization of new citizens. Roger L. Gregory, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, will preside.
