A Gift for Any Occasion

Give a MEMBERSHIP to the Virginia Living Museum for a gift that keeps giving all year long…and what a year it will be!

There’s always something new to see as animals native to Virginia swim, slither, roam and fly.  A membership offers unlimited admission for a FULL YEAR of amazing exhibits, events, fun and discovery for your family or friend and so many wild benefits.

Gift memberships can be purchased at the Museum, over the phone 757-595-1900 ext. 240, or online below.



Why give a gift membership?

  • The perfect size is always in stock.
    From individual memberships to entire households, the VLM offers a wide range of options to ensure the best fit for your friends, family members or colleagues.
  • It’s a great clutter buster.
    Be honest — how many well-meaning gifts are gathering dust in your own home? A VLM membership is a great way to give them a great experience without cluttering their space.
  • The more they use it, the better it gets.
    Most gifts and gadgets eventually break or wear out — but a gift membership to the VLM becomes more valuable with each new discovery and it can be used all year long.
  • Every tradition starts somewhere!
    The first time you give a VLM membership, you’ll make quite an impression. But why stop there? Each time you renew a gift membership, you’re building a tradition.
  • The gift that keeps on giving.
    Not only is a VLM membership a great gift, but it helps further the mission of the museum by supporting our education programs, exhibits, and wildlife.
