Our Mission is to promote and encourage the study and research of Richmond's history (including the greater Richmond area) and to disseminate knowledge of that history; to collect, preserve and display historical materials and artifacts of significance to Richmond, and to mark, preserve, and maintain places of historical interest. The Richmond Museum of History is a non-profit organization and relies solely on the support of the community. We generate income through annual paid memberships and through fund-raising activities. The Museum also relies on the residents (and former residents) of Richmond for donations to its collection of artifacts and photographs.
