Welcome to the Virginia Living Museum

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. Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks will feature 16 nature themed sculptures on display in the Conservation Garden from July 22 – November 26.

INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEAN-UP: 83 pounds of trash was collected in Deer Park Lake and under our boardwalk on Sunday, including: 

110 food wrappers collected (candy, chips, etc.)
85 plastic bags
15 yards of fishing line
a biohazard bag from the hospital
a turtle shell (no indication of how the turtle died) It will be checked for notches to see if it is a turtle previously collected in one of our Turtle census days.

Additionally 2 burst balloons were found and that data also gets entered at virginiaballoonstudy.org.

Thanks to our 6 volunteers who collected trash. International Coastal Clean Up (ICCU) is organized by the Ocean Conservancy and in Virginia it is locally organized by the Clean Virginia Waterways of Longwood University.
