Description

This Feasibility Study is the next step toward establishing a dynamic destination museum in the City of Richmond, where cultural, museum, and heritage activities of the past and present can be supported and celebrated into the future. Guided by previous work – including the vision and objectives developed for the Richmond Museum & Heritage Strategy – as well as staff and stakeholder consultations, this project provides a comprehensive feasibility study that will guide a new facility to reality. This new Museum could play a dynamic and critical role in the City’s cultural life and also attract and educate visitors from around the world. 

The Arlington Group also completed an update of this feasibility study to reflect the changes in the Richmond context, such as the Canada Line and the current and projected population growth of the City.
