I volunteered at the Science Museum back in the 80's and have visited every couple of years. I haven't been back for at least five years and was amazed at how much has changed and how much there was to see and do. We planned four hours - but should have planned at least six to see all the exhibits and one DOME show. Wicked plants was great - we learned that we have a bunch in our yard! The Humpbacks film was A+. DON'T miss BOOST located in the basement - we only got to do a few before the Museum closed for the day. Great day - very interesting for for all of us - 12 yr, 20 yr, and over 50... lots to see and do - great hands on experiences - and they both talked about what they want to see/do on their next visit.

About Science Museum of Virginia

One of the Science Museum of Virginia’s current exhibits includes a few basketball players—just don’t expect LeBron James or Kobe Bryant. These basketball players are two rats, playing a live one-on-one game to demonstrate operant and classical conditioning. Throughout the three-story museum, more hands-on examples of science await at five permanent exhibits. Inspect a rock from the moon, explore a life-size space capsule, and generate energy by pedaling a stationary bike. Kids can even build their own playground with materials such as mats and foam blocks.

Inside the IMAX Dome, a screen 10 times the size of a typical 35 mm screen shows a wide range of educational films. Outside the museum, plants in the BayScapes Garden thrive without pesticide, fertilizer, or the encouragement of a motivational speaker, and an onsite greenhouse offers free planting areas for visitors to contribute greenery and learn about sustainable farming.
