The Richmond Museum of History is very proud to be one of the oldest organizations dedicated to local history in West County! Although many things get better with age, museum exhibits do not always age gracefully. The permanent exhibit at the Richmond Museum of History was installed in 1980 and we are excited to announce we are fundraising to renovate it! The exhibit renovation will be completed in stages by chronology, so the first area that will be redone is the Native American section of the permanent exhibit. Richmond was inhabited by Native Americans for thousands of years before arrival of the Spanish, and that time period has been the subject of considerable research.
The permanent exhibit will be interpretive, interactive, and accessible to all in our community when it is completely finished. We intend for the exhibit to present multiple points of view, so that all people in our diverse community will feel accurately represented. Will you please consider making a small donation toward the renovation effort?
