Escape to the Great OutdoorsNature is Calling - Virginia Living Museum


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.

VLM MYSTERY: Have you met our mole kingsnake? If you havent, here he is! Mole kingsnakes are moderate sized snakes, reaching up to 40 inches in length. They are fossorial, spending much of their time underground. These constrictors feed on small mammals, lizards, and even other snakes! The best thing to do if you encounter a snake is leave it be, as they are an important part of the ecosystem. But dont leave our next mystery be! Come back tomorrow for a clue! #VLMMystery #valivingmuseum #museumfromhome #molekingsnake #snake #snakesofinstagram
