A Richmond, Virginia Community

From its historical buildings and magnificent gardens to its animal exhibits and rolling lawns, Maymont truly offers something for everyone. Once the 100-acre Victorian estate of the Dooleys, Maymont was bequeathed to the city of Richmond in 1925 as a public park and museum. Today it continues to reflect the splendor of the Gilded Age and is filled with wonders the Dooleys never imagined. A true family attraction, Maymont now offers tours of the Victorian mansion that even the kids will enjoy, exhibits to view bison, black bear, otters and hundreds of other animals, tram and carriage rides and much more. EXHIBITS OPEN TUESDAY-SUNDAY, 12-5PM. Grounds open daily.
