Welcome to the Virginia Living Museum

Protect What’s Precious

View endangered red wolves. Get up close to a loggerhead turtle and moon jellies. See fish with no eyes and frogs that change colors. Touch live horseshoe crabs and fossilized dinosaur tracks. It’s all at the Virginia Living Museum, Newport News, where living exhibits depict Virginia’s natural heritage from the mountains to the sea. The Museum introduces visitors to more than 250 living species native to Virginia through exhibits, discovery centers and interactive hands-on exhibits. The Virginia Living Museum showcases Virginia’s natural and living resources so that people of all ages and in future generations will understand and protect the balance of our natural world. This summer visitors can enjoy realistic, roaring dinosaurs in “Dinos Live!” and can uncover, ID and take home real fossils in the outdoor Fossil Find.
