Party Among the Animals at the Virginia Living Museum

Rita-wbirdThe Virginia Living Museum is the perfect choice for receptions, corporate parties, banquets, weddings, gender reveals and celebrations of all kinds for up to 500 people.

Rent the indoor exhibit area where living exhibits recreate an Appalachian Cove and a Cypress Swamp. Enjoy the underwater world of the Chesapeake Bay and the underground world of a limestone cave. Have a cocktail party on the rooftop patio and look at the stars through the telescope. Start your event on the outdoor deck overlooking Deer Park Lake and dance the night away on two levels inside. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres around the spiral staircase or a sit-down meal for 200.

Escape the boring ballroom…celebrate your wedding ceremony and reception surrounded by the Conservation Garden that includes a scenic amphitheater and a beautiful waterfall.

Rentals of the indoor exhibit areas are scheduled after the museum closes at 5pm. The Conservation Garden is available for afternoon receptions and weddings. Classrooms and the conference room are available for day time rentals.
