TIMED ADMISSION TICKETS

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, we now offers timed admission.

All guests and members (including ages 2 and under) are encouraged to secure 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.)

Ticket times reflect the arrival time only; members and guests may stay at the museum for as long as they like until closing.

Changes to timed admission tickets may be made in advance (based on availability) by emailing Ticketinfo@thevlm.org.

Ticket prices:
