The Virginia Holocaust Museum, in partnership with the Virginia Museum of History and Culture, and the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia will display several violins from the touring exhibit.
This is the first time the three museums have partnered, along with the Richmond Symphony. This is also the first time a Black History Museum has partnered for this exhibit.
The violins on display at the three museums can be viewed free of charge; a donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated by each museum.

Through our permanent exhibits, temporary exhibits, educational programming, and outreach, the Museum employs the history of the Holocaust, and other genocides to educate and inspire future generations to fight racism, bigotry, and prejudice.
