Richmond’s most renowned historic homes and museums offer visitors a “passport” to time-travel during a special admission-free weekend on Saturday and Sunday, March 11 and 12. Tourists and locals alike are invited to discover the City’s treasures, spanning 400 years of fascinating history and including the homes of John Marshall, Jefferson Davis, John Wickham, Major James Dooley and other important Virginians. The participating organizations include Agecroft Hall, The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design, Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia, National Park Service, Preservation Virginia, Maymont, Henrico County Parks & Recreation, American Civil War Museum, Edgar Allan Poe Museum, The Valentine and Wilton House Museum. All historical sites will offer complimentary admission to visitors who show a Time Travelers Passport, available via download or at any participating attractions. This special offer equates to savings of more than $65 per person.
Each of the fourteen total sites will enter all visitors’ names into a grand prize drawing, therefore, the more sites you visit the bigger the chances are to win. The prize is a surprise but consists of collection items from all historical sites!
