Virginia Living Museum
Photo Tour   

See animals native to Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay swim, slither, roam and fly in the all-new, three times larger Virginia Living Museum. Transport yourself to the steamy world of a cypress swamp, complete with alligators and snapping turtles. Find songbirds nestled in the trees around a cascading mountain waterfall and view trout in a cool mountain stream.

Explore the underwater world of the Chesapeake Bay and the underground realm of a limestone cave. See flying squirrels, stingrays and other creatures of the night. Touch some famous Bay creatures, plus enjoy four hands-on discovery centers. See spectacular views of the sun from the new observatory and travel the universe in the planetarium theater.

Outdoors, stroll the 3/4-mile elevated boardwalk to view coastal birds, bald eagles, beavers, bobcats, river otters, endangered red wolves and other animals in natural habitats.

All of these experiences are possible in parts of the Chesapeake Bay region, and now in the new Virginia Living Museum.

Winter (Labor Day to Memorial Day): Monday - Saturday 9 AM to 5 PM, Sunday 12 noon to 5 PM.
