Law Student

Better than average but still not great apartment. Very safe and close to a lot of fun stuff to do! I love being able to study and drink and hang out all on the roof.

However it is very poorly insulated so the electric bill in the summer was crazy high. The washer and dryer on my floor are often broken and the others sometimes leave weird marks on my clothes!

Maintenance here is amazing. Ray and Kevin are both so so sweet and great at their jobs. They are a big part of the reason we stayed after a year.

Great place to live!

Kensington Court is a great place to live for students who are unfamiliar with Richmond. Many of the larger, private residences that are available for rent do not post online and rent quickly. Although you can find something larger for your money, Kensington Court is still a great place to live. The staff are courteous and responsive. I have needed maintenance done on both the AC and heat; and the maintenance crew was at the apartment the same day to fix the problems. There is a gym on site that is convenient. The building is in a great, safe location. I am able to walk to many bars and restaurants.

Great Place

This building has great amenities, like a rooftop deck, gym, and gated courtyard. The building is very secure and located on the same block as 4 bars, a few restaurants, and a few shops. The drive to UR takes 12 minutes. The walls are thick, I have never heard my neighbors. Maintenance requests are handled promptly.

Kensington court

I love my apartment! A lot of natural light, a parking lot, and walking distance to Carytown and Scott’s Addition. It’s about 10-15 minutes to school and the neighborhood is very quiet.

Love Kensington Court

Great staff, responsive management, safe building, and awesome neighborhood. It's a fantastic community that really feels like home. The Museum District is also an awesome place to live! It's an easy drive to West Creek, and not as busy or congested as the Fan. Street parking is pretty easy to find and it's an easy walk to Carytown and lots of restaurants.

Awesome place to live

I was moving from out of town and didn't know a lot about Richmond when making my decision. I wanted to move to a safe building, in a good neighborhood and Kensington Court checked all of the boxes. The Museum District is an awesome place for young people to live! It is close to the Fan with lots of fun restaurants and places to go out. Definitely the place to be to meet young people.

I think that this complex is one of the best kept secrets for young professionals living in the Fan. It's the only large complex in the area, and it provides a comfortable, quiet living experience. However, there is plenty to do in the surrounding blocks, from the VMFA, restaurants, bars, etc.

The Museum District Reviews

17 reviews
A great location between Scott's Addition and Carytown, the Museum District is that great mix between right where you want to be and still quiet enough. The greenery of the neighborhood is quite beautiful making it great to walk/run around, despite the sidewalks being uneven at points. Street parking is much easier to find here than in the Fan, though you may still encounter porch pirates if you live on a main road.
The best place to live. Everything you need is within walking distance. I don't feel uncomfortable walking at night. This neighborhood mostly consists of working young adults and young families. This area is an escape from the tall buildings of downtown, but urban enough so that you still feel like you are in the city.
The VFMA is a wonderful museum located near by. Cary street and Carytown isn't too far away with some great restaurants. A couple grocery stores are in walking distance. The neighborhood consists mainly of families and is very safe.
I wish I could live here forever. It's not as expensive as the fan and it has way better parking. Very near Carytown!
I LOVE the Museum District. It’s convenient to Carytown the Fan, and Scott’s Addition, but it avoids the sketchiness and business of those neighborhoods on the weekends. It’s the perfect balance between social and quiet. The Museum District is perfect for grad students who like to run through scenic streets or walk to the VMFA for happy hour. Everyone is very friendly. Lots of grocery options near here: you could walk to Kroger, The Fresh Market, Elwood Thompson’s, etc. Convenient to the highway as well.
Walk to the Art Museum on Thursday night to sit on the lawn near the sculptures and listen to live music! Or walk a few blocks to a bunch of restaurant and bar options on Cary Street.
Amazing! Highly reccomended
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience in the Museum District. I feel safe here, and the other residents of the neighborhood are friendly. It's a great location in that it's so close to Carytown and the Fan District. It's a great neighborhood to go on runs and walks through the neighborhood.
