Black History Museum
& Cultural Center of Virginia

The Museum is an adaptive reuse of the Leigh Street Armory, originally constructed in 1895 and once home to Virginia’s African American militia. M Companies led renovation of the  the 6,500-SF existing building and  addition of 5,500-SF for main entry and support space. The result is a modern design that incorporates the buildings historic attributes, including exhibition galleries, interactive galleries and community gathering spaces as well as support spaces for administration and collections storage.
