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.  Visitors experience animals native to Virginia in habitats, discovery centers and interactive exhibits. The Virginia Living Museum showcases Virginia’s natural and living resources to encourage understanding and protection of our natural world.

Traveling exhibits for 2016 continue with “Dinosaur Discoveries” in our indoor gallery May 7 – Sept. 5, 2016. In honor of its 50th anniversary, the Virginia Living Museum is bringing back some of the most popular dinosaurs on exhibit, including T-rex and Triceratops, for a summer of roaring, life-like prehistoric creatures.
