The mission of the Valentine is to engage, educate, and challenge a diverse audience by collecting, preserving, and interpreting Richmond's history. The Valentine offers major changing exhibitions, which focus on American urban and social history, costumes, decorative arts and architecture. The Valentine includes the stately Wickham House, a National Historic Landmark and an outstanding example of neoclassical architecture featuring rare wall paintings. Through its collections, exhibitions, and programs it reflects and interprets the broad issues and diverse communities, which define the history of Richmond and its surrounding counties. The Valentine is the only institution in the city that has committed itself solely to this mission. Open Tues.-Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sun. 12-5 p.m.
