Timed Tickets at Virginia Living Museum Zoo Calendar



Welcome to the Virginia Living Museum, where we connect people to nature through educational experiences that promote conservation!

In order to provide the best guest experience and continue to manage attendance as mandated by state guidelines, the museum now offers timed admission.

All guests and members (including ages 2 and under) must obtain a timed admission ticket in advance. Upon timed arrival, members and guests can enjoy the Museum and grounds at their own pace.

Members and guests who reserve a timed admission ticket in advance will be admitted at that time, non-ticketed members and guests will be accommodated as space is available in a timed admission slot. Daily admission remains free for members. Members reserving admission tickets must do so for all guests, those included on the membership and those not included (paid admissions.)

Changes to timed admission tickets may be made in advance (based on availability) by emailing

Ticket prices:

Members – FREE with valid membership

Adults (ages 13 and above) $18.95 – $21.95

Children (ages 12 and below) $14.95
