Welcome to the Virginia Living Museum

Virginia’s Animal Attraction & Dino Destination

The Virginia Living Museum is a successful public-private partnership, since 1966, between the City of Newport News and the Virginia Living Museum, a 501 (c)(3) organization. Together we connect people to nature through educational experiences that promote conservation.
BUILT by the Community, BELOVED by the Community and SUSTAINED by the Community, the Museum depends on private donations to succeed. We appreciate your financial contribution to support engaging education, animal welfare and conservation experiences for you and your family. Please consider a gift to our Annual Fund or a planned gift to our Endowment for future sustainability.

VIRGINIA SKIES: Tonight the Moon begins a journey through the constellation Virgo. Just past First Quarter phase, this is an excellent time to check out the Moon through binoculars or a telescope. Look for it in the South around 9pm. #vaskies #valivingmuseum ... See MoreSee Less

NATURE AT NOON: This picture came from Laura Apelt Maney! These are goldfinches! The males have bright yellow over most of their body with a black section between their eyes and beak.

Second morning this box turtle has been hanging out in the garden!

Tree ears after a rain. This fungus has an appropriate name!

American bullfrog

Just happened to be sitting outside when this male scarlet tanager flew over my head and landed in a tree. He was kind enough to pose for a few minutes on our fountain while I got my camera.

We watched a monarch butterfly lay eggs on our backyard milkweed, and now we’re raising 32 of her children. Can’t wait for the butterfly hatch out!
