We had a lot of fun here, and there's still a lot of information to learn and things to look at. Because of covid, most of the interactive activities were removed. I want to come back to visit once the threat of the virus is contained more!

Our 4 grandchildren, ages 11, 10, 6 and 4 — all LOVE coming to the Museum. Although we have come several times, they always ask to come back! The staff is always so friendly and the Museum is always so clean and inviting. The Exhibits are always so well displayed. We also “found” the park below the Museum and walked down to it. Very nice ! We look forward to returning again soon.

We enjoyed our visit to this small but kid friendly museum with our 8 and 9 year old grandsons. Empty on our Friday afternoon visit. Quite a long drive for us, but feel it was worth it. Nice park nextdoor for running kids before long car ride home.

About Virginia Museum of Natural History

Before visitors to the Virginia Museum of Natural History greet any tour guides or scientists, they have to meet the doorman—a towering allosaurus skeleton looming just inside the glass-walled main entrance. Once inside the Hall of Ancient Life, they peer into tall windows to see scientists and their assistants cleaning, categorizing, and playing catch with each animal fossil. Though founded less than 30 years ago as a private foundation, the museum and its staff have assembled more than 10 million specimens in seven collections, which cover vertebrate paleontology, marine science, geology, and archaeology.

At the Uncovering Virginia exhibit, recreations of six Virginia research and dig sites draw visitors into 700 million years of local history. Interactive displays include the modern Grundy site coal mine, complete with tracks, carts, and buildings. When visitors push a button, the display shifts—altering through video animation and changing physically as museum curators channel the power of Zeus—to reveal what the site looked like as a 300 million-year-old swamp. The Hahn Hall of Biodiversity looks into the world of African animals, boasting full-body mounts of a lion and antelopes. Dinosaurs brings in skeletal casts of dinosaurs displayed alongside dinosaur-themed activities to puzzle children, adults, and adult-sized children.
