Though rich in cultural heritage, Virginia ranks near

Post by jancancook on Tue Nov 08, 2011 10:48 am

Though rich in cultural heritage, Virginia ranks near the bottom of U.S. states in terms of public spending on the arts, at nearly half of the national average.[168] The state government does fund some institutions, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Science Museum of Virginia. Other museums include the popular Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center of the National Air and Space Museum and the Chrysler Museum of Art.[169] Besides these sites, many open-air museums are located in the Commonwealth, such as Colonial Williamsburg, the Frontier Culture Museum, and various historic battlefields.[170] The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities works to improve the Commonwealth's civic, cultural, and intellectual life.[171]
