YMCA Membership Swap – December 1 – 31

We are giving members the gift of membership this holiday season.

For the first time, the VLM is swapping memberships with the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA and the YMCA of South Hampton Roads!

During the entire month of December, Virginia Living Museum Members who visit any of the 14 Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA locations and 22 South Hampton Roads YMCA locations will get unlimited group exercise classes, child care for up to two hours per day when at the Y and state-of-the-art fitness equipment. Members can also take advantage of member reduced paid programs such as personal training and camps in the month of December.

The YMCA will waive the joining fee (up to a $100 value) for Virginia Living Museum members that join the YMCA in December.

Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA and the YMCA of South Hampton Roads members can enjoy unlimited admission to the Virginia Living Museum for the month of December, plus a 10% off discount in the Wild Things Museum Store and Wild Side Cafe. VLM will also offer Birthday Parties at the Museum for their YMCA member families at a member rate.
