Have the Virginia Living Museum Visit You In Person 

We’ll come TO YOU with living creatures. The programs below are particularly appropriate for libraries, organizations, church groups, retirement centers and nursing homes. Several programs are also available to schools, PTAs and day care centers in the evening or on the weekend (depending on staff availability).

VLM's Mini Museum

Now you can bring the Virginia Living Museum to your next event. Well, maybe not the whole Museum, but a VLM educator, a table full of engaging hands-on Museum specimens and a LIVE animal is certainly the next best thing! Tell us about your event and we’ll be happy to design an amazing “mini museum” just for you and your group.

Available Times: evening until 9pm and weekends with staff availability.

Cost: $345 minimum for up to 2 hours; $75 per additional hour. Add $50 for evening program after 5pm.
