Blue Star Museums program

Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America offers free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2014. Leadership support has been provided by MetLife Foundation through Blue Star Families.

Lynchburg Museums Recognized in
Top 100 of Virginia's Favorite Architecture

The votes are in, and the people have spoken. The Virginia Center for Architecture announces today that the Lynchburg Museum and Monument Terrace and Point of Honor have been ranked in the top 100 structures in a public poll to identify Virginia’s Favorite Architecture.

The survey, which garnered nearly 30,000 votes, found that Virginians chose buildings that evoke powerful emotions and memories as their favorites. Universities and Thomas Jefferson claim most of the top 10, with an historic church and an iconic airport thrown into the mix.  The Lynchburg Museum and Monument Terrace ranked 21st and Point of Honor 50th out of 100 in the survey. 

“I think Lynchburg should be very proud of these historic treasures,” said Museum Director, Doug Harvey. “We are pleased that others throughout the Commonwealth also recognize what architectural jewels these structures are.”
