Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History is the primary fine arts and historical institution in the region and is valued as a major cultural resource for regional educators, artists, students, and researchers. The Museum collaborates with cultural organizations to promote and develop art education and programs for the general public, both residents and visitors. Partnering organizations include the Garden Club of Virginia local chapters, Danville Historical Society, Danville Science Center, the Danville Art League, the city and county school systems, the City Parks and Recreation Department, Danville Community College, and Averett University. The Museum space serves as a social and networking meeting center for local businesses, families, and organizations, including space to exhibit their artwork and collections. The Museum offers a variety of membership opportunities and is open to the public with a small admission fee, which is waived for regional residents on one Saturday and Sunday each month and during special events.
