Capital Campaign

In honor of our 25th Anniversary, VHM kicked off a $2.5 million Capital Campaign. The campaign’s goals are two-fold: to improve and expand what we offer visitors, scholars and educators; to improve the energy efficiency, comfort, and security in the building. To date, the Capital Campaign has raised $2 million.

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.
