To visit us, take 22nd street west headed to I-264 West. Turn right at the final light before the highway (there is a big Virginia MOCA sign). Directly ahead is the Virginia MOCA parking lot.
ENJOYING THE MUSEUM
Contemporary art is an ever-changing experience, and we want everyone to get to enjoy that! So here are a few things to note before your visit that help us ensure that everyone can have a good time.
MASKS ARE OUR FRIENDS
Based on the guidance of the Governor, we suggest that all visitors wear masks regardless of vaccination status. Non-vaccinated visitors are required to wear masks—this goes for all visitors, ages 4 - 104. On our end, our staff will be masked when interacting with visitors.
IF YOU CAN'T CARRY IT, LEAVE IT
Even an accidental bump can be a big deal for the artwork. So to keep the work protected, we can't allow large bags, bulky items or backpacks in the gallery. Coat check space is limited so do consider visiting light.
AND OF COURSE...
No food or drinks in the galleries, no flash photos (Dale Chihuly’s Mille Colori is ok, as it lives here permanently), and please touch with your eyes only—we want to preserve the artwork for all future art lovers. And while we love our artists-in-the-making, all kiddos must be accompanied by an adult.
IMPROVING YOUR MUSEUM EXPERIENCE
We strive to make the art experience welcoming to everyone and accessible in many forms.
We have portable gallery chairs you can carry with you—they weigh less than 2 pounds! The Museum is also fully wheelchair accessible.
TROUBLE NAVIGATING STAIRS?
There are no stairs required to visit any of the artwork in the Museum.
DO YOU OR A LOVED ONE HAVE VISION IMPAIRMENT?
Audio tours are available for every exhibition and feature a large selection of the works. Some of the exhibitions also have Spanish language audio tours.
ON A BUDGET?
Thanks to the generous support of some friends of ours, the Museum is free of charge.
