The Wild Things Museum Store located just off the lobby at the Virginia Living Museum offers unusual science and nature-related gifts catering to every taste and budget.

Favorite youth selections include rock, mineral and fossil specimens, educational novelties and North American animal-themed jewelry.

Hand-made jewelry, glass and pottery, plus giftware, wildlife sculptures and unique home décor selections tempt the adult visitor.

Puzzles, games, posters, activity and craft kits all reflect our natural environment.

Custom-designed wearables for all ages and sizes graphically illustrate our animals and special exhibits, and are very comfortable souvenirs or gifts.

Spring Native Plant Sale 2021

Prepare for our Spring Native Plant Sale coming in April! Back by popular demand for both in person and online shopping. Choose from an incredible array of beautiful and unusual native plants for a variety of garden sites and styles, from wet ponds to dry rock gardens. Many of these are excellent plants for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to your yard.

Native plants are good choices for area gardeners because such plants tolerate the area’s weather and serve as food and shelter for area wildlife, while also providing a good show in the garden.

Information on placing online orders will be forthcoming; in person shopping dates are listed below.

Member Preview: April 15th

Open to the public: April 17th, 18th, 24th, 25th
