Eero Saarinen Richmond VA Architecture Museum

If you live near Richmond Va stop by the Virginia Architecture Museum to see the Saarinen exhibit ending January 25, 2009. It's not bad, but lacks a lot of history. I wouldn't drive more than an hour to see it. The museum itself is a beautiful old house designed by famous Richmond architect John Pope. However, the museum as a whole does not utilize the space. The main exhibit gallery was small and very nice, but it seems that 80% of the rest of the house is used for meeting rooms. I found the staff to be unfriendly. I do believe that they may have some rooms dedicated for classes or other learning opportunities which is good. The photo above was taken from a Boston Globe Article.
