It's time once again for Battle Hymn, a friendly local gaming convention taking place on Saturday May 8, 2010 here near Richmond, Virginia!
This year, the Richmond Leisure Society has combined forces with the Virginia Aviation Museum to put on quite a show. We're especially excited about this partnership. Only at the Virginia Aviation Museum can you get up close and personal with an actual Great War fighter, an SR-71 Blackbird, a Huey Slick, an F-14 Tomcat and William Randolph Hearst's personal air-limo!
The central hall of the museum has been given over to gaming, and several secondary areas have been made available for our use.
The Museum opens at 9:30 and closes at 5:00, so we have uninterrupted time in between.
Besides our miniatures and board gaming, attractions include a mini movie theater showing the Soviet classic "Liberation" and other films, a state of the art flight simulator, and all of the outstanding exhibits that are part of the museum! A guided tour of the exhibits will be given during the break in gaming as well.
Admission is $6 USD per adult, $5 USD per child under 18. Seniors and active military enjoy reduced rates.
