Museums need capable and enthusiastic volunteers. The Museum of the Confederacy is lucky to have their share including Abdur Ali-Haymes – our tour leader for the visit to the White House of the Confederacy (which is next to the Museum). Abdur was born and raised in Richmond, served his career in the U.S Army and returned to his home town for retirement. He is active in the Museum and also serves as the Museum Operations Assistant. For us the most important thing was that he was a knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. He knew his history and his building. Best of all – he knows how to tell a good story! If you go to the Museum of the Confederacy the half hour guided tour is a must. Maybe you will be as fortunate as we were to listen to Abdur.
