The Virginia Living Museum is the perfect place for your performing group! The Museum’s 100-seat outdoor amphitheater and its entrance courtyard are the perfect places for your group to perform. There is plenty of room, the acoustics are great (the animals won’t be disturbed!) and there are places for your audience to sit and enjoy the show. At the conclusion of the performance, your group can spend a few hours relaxing and learning about the wildlife of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay.
