A living museum that recreates historical settings to simulate a past time period.

The Virginia Living Museum is alive and interactive. First opened in 1966 as the Junior Nature Museum and Planetarium, it continued to grow and change into a living museum over the years by incorporating living exhibits and preservation land along with traditional exhibits. Virginia's natural heritage from the mountains to the sea can be explored in this part zoo, nature park, aquarium, science center, planetarium, and garden. Seeing animals local to Virginia in naturalized habitats is fantastic. There is a limestone cave, a cypress swamp, and a mountain cove here. You can go to the planetarium theater and see galaxies, or visit the observatory to view the sun. Kids can role-play as a vet or zookeeper, or they can take the nature trail that has 250 species of animals and plants. There are many educational opportunities here like learning to build, live, and garden "green". There is an indoor and an outdoor area to see and explore. There are plenty of special activities during the year like turkey pardoning, Fall Native Plant Sale, Night of the Living Museum, Frogs and Fairytales, Reptile Weekend, and the Spring Native Plant Sale. They have great food options and the "Wild Things" museum store. Open from 9 am - 5 pm every day except for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year. All of that and more for $21.95 for (13 years and up), and children for $14.95.
