Named for the nationally known architect who designed Broad Street Station, the Pope Society honors those who recognize the importance of investing in the Museum’s great presence in the community today and its work engaging and inspiring generations to come.
Built to last in granite and steel, Popeís innovations in design and engineering ensure Broad Street Stationís lasting value. The building embodies a multidisciplinary approach that inspires Virginians to enrich their lives through science.
