WHAT'S PRECIOUS in our WORLD



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: One of the more prominent constellations of the Spring sky is Leo the Lion. Look for him tonight in the east around 8:30pm. His head and chest are formed by a large backwards question mark, while his hindquarters are a small triangle. He seems to be lying down on the sky. #VAskies #valivingmuseum
