VHS offering special behind the scenes tour this weekend

‘Virginia Victuals: Food and Drink in the Old Dominion’ kicks off at 10:30 AM Saturday morning.

The Virginia Historical Society is offering a special behind the scenes tour of the museum tomorrow, and it’s open to members and non-members alike.

‘Virginia Victuals: Food and Drink in the Old Dominion’ will take guests into areas of the society not normally open to the public, as well as give the opportunity to view rare items and choice selections from the VHS.

The tour will touch on some topics relevant to Virginia and US history such as the starving time in Jamestown, the Richmond Bread Riot in 1863, Prohibition, and World War II and pair these events with items from the collections.

The tour begins in the new Carole and Marcus Weinstein Learning Center classroom at 10:30 AM and ends in the new Hugh V. White, Jr. HistoryConnects studio.

Tickets are $10 for VHS members and $17 for non-members and are available here.
