Truly Bizarre

The Virginia Historical Society debuts a new exhibit on Saturday, June 12th, called Bizarre Bits: Oddities from the Collection. It showcases more than forty of the most unusual objects and materials in the vast VHS holdings.

From the press release:

“The only common tie between the items featured in this exhibition is that they are all bizarre—objects about odd people and events or with an unusual color, shape, or purpose,” said William Rasmussen, lead curator at the Virginia Historical Society.  “As visitors walk through the show, I image they will be asking themselves, ‘What in the world is coming up next?’ and “Why did the VHS take all this stuff?’”

Museum Hours: Tuesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m.–5 p.m. (shop and museum galleries only). Admission is free. For more information, call (804) 358-4901 or visit
