How to Help?

How can I best support the VLM today?
Renew your membership with us while holding to the one year expiration date.  As a non-profit, we at the Virginia Living Museum remain committed to our mission of connecting people to nature. Now, more than ever, the critical need for funding is paramount to sustaining the 250+ species who call the museum home. By choosing this option, you will be using your membership purchase to fully assist us in protecting what is precious.

What does this mean for my Membership?

How can I continue with my needed support without losing time?
We understand that you would like to support the VLM as we continue to care for our animals, but may not want to compromise visitation time. If you so choose, once the museum reopens, additional time will be added to your membership to ensure you have a full twelve months connecting with nature!


As a non-profit Virginia Living Museum’s closure has a significant financial impact on the Museum and most critically – funds needed to provide essential daily care and food for our 250 living animal species. Our amazing Animal Welfare & Conservation staff continue to deliver the highest level of care to our Animal Ambassadors, providing diets and medical care daily. We may be closed- but our needs remain the same.  Donate Now
