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.

Wish younger kids with a love of dinosaurs could also participate! 😭

So it’s “family night” but you are excluding children in the family who aren’t 6? 🤔 I can certainly understand not wanting infants and toddlers to attend an event that lasts until 9:30PM, but it’s a shame you won’t allow 5 year olds, especially those who have been in school this year and are almost finished with kindergarten.

My 8yr old is so excited especially for the camping part. Thanks for always thinking up these fun activities

Heather Fournier Bryce would lose his mind...
