Exhibit Renovation Campaign
The Virginia Holocaust Museum is currently undergoing a multi-year renovation of our core exhibits. This process will update, modernize and expand the main exhibits, while focusing on threading the voices of Virginia’s Survivors into the narrative. These renovations will support our mission to educate and inspire future generations of Virginians to fight prejudice and indifference.

Since 1999, over 4.9 million pennies have been donated by schools, classes, and clubs from across Virginia. The Penny Campaign was begun by Rachel Rosenbaum as a pedagogical strategy to help quantify the more than 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
