Virginia Living Museum is one of our most favorite attractions in Hampton Roads.  Our family has personally had a membership for over 10 years.  There is always something new and exciting happening at the VLM from changing exhibits to special events to wonderful camps for kids.  We even just enjoy having a relaxing and peaceful place to walk around on a beautiful day.  Military Child Weekend is a great opportunity to grab a family membership at a great discount!

Virginia’s Animal Attraction--**Things are operating differently than normal due to COVID.  The experiences are currently no touch and some offerings may not be available** 

Virginia’s natural heritage is the star at the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News. See endangered red wolves, bald eagles and a loggerhead sea turtle. Touch live spider crabs and fossilized dinosaur tracks. Living exhibits depict Virginia’s natural heritage from the mountains to the sea. Hands-on activities (not available at this time), an observatory, state-of-the-art digital planetarium, outdoor boardwalk, green living demonstration house, native plant and conservation gardens add to the experience.

Kids can get active at the Nature Playground with its climbing spider web, hop on mushroom shapes and talking tubes, and play Hobbit House. Indoors, future animal keepers and vets can play, learn and dream in the new permanent exhibit, “Wild & Well.” Designed primarily for preK to 3rd grade children, the exhibit offers hands-on exploration and learning about animal health with a secondary message about human health.

The VLM offers amazing nature and science programs for kids during the school year and week-long camps during the summer.  This year due to COVID, things are different than years past.  Click the link above to learn more.
