Open for Business
November 10, 2015 - May 23, 2016
Richmond is a great place to live, work and play located on the edge of the Pacific Ocean where the land meets the sea. It's also an ideal place to do business. Join us as we explore how small businesses have shaped Richmond over time -- and how our community continues to influence and support them.

Interwoven World: Identity and Fashion
November 6, 2014 - October 18, 2015
Explore how western fashion has been influenced for centuries by diverse cultures around the globe. Discover how our clothes, jewelry and army uniforms have ‘borrowed’ everything from silk to khaki to cotton—and adopted the lampshade look, harem pants and other surprising styles!

City Hall Exhibits
The Richmond Museum displays exhibits in five display cases on the main floor of Richmond City Hall. Three of the cases feature Gifts to the Mayor; the remaining three have regularly changing topics.

Spring Break Camp Exhibit
March 24 – August 17, 2016
During the Richmond Museum’s week-long Create an Exhibit program, children, ages 9 to 12, created the One-Stop Shop exhibit about corner stores from days gone by. Our guest curators selected artefacts from the museum’s education collection, researched their purpose and wrote artefact labels for their display. In addition to exhibit design, camp participants explored behind the scenes at the museum, went on field trips and engaged in numerous fun-filled activities.
