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.
