Virginia’s Animal Attraction & Dino Destination

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. Relive the age of the dinosaurs. 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. Explore the new outdoor Dinosaur Discovery Trail with 16 life-like dinosaurs, paleo camp, dig pits & dinosaur fossils. Join us for American Adventure opening January 2019.
