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.

Lined seahorses (Hippocampus erectus) are native to Virginia but local populations are in decline as they are throughout their range. The VLM actively participates in AZA’s Species Survival Plan (SSP) program that coordinates with other AZA-accredited facilities across the country to manage and conserve wild populations of the lined seahorse.
