We have a membership because it's a much better deal than going once or twice. The kids love it, they have temporary seasonal exhibits like the life sized dinosaurs and the arachnids. They used to have a Lego area and I hope they bring it back. It's cleaner than it was when I was a child which is a plus. Most of the volunteers that we speak with are helpful and knowledgeable. My kids love the play area with the vet center and kitchen stuff and the x rays. The microscope picture thing is really cool.

Very interesting museum. Great for kids to learn so much about fossils and nature. Easy walking on the boardwalks. Take your time to see each pen and who's in it. Don't miss the dinosaurs, very cool ! Visit both rooms of nature inside and grab a bite in the cafeteria. Nice gift store, also. Pleasant staff.

Haven't visited here in years. Went with my three year old and one year old on Easter weekend and had such a great time. The staff was so friendly and there was so much to do! Spent around 2.5 hours here and could have spent a lot longer here but the littlest one had reached her limit. The outdoor animal exhibits were great, it felt like we were at the zoo but with less walking. Indoor spaces were clean, well maintained and very educational. My daughter had an absolute blast and talks about it all the time. Absolutely worth every penny we spent to get in here (which was actually a lot cheaper than some of the other destinations in the area). I was also informed that some of the exhibits change throughout the year so it seems like there is always something new to do there. Also a plus, the gift shop was stocked with a lot of cheaper, but cute, options. As a treat we let my older daughter pick whatever she wanted and we walked out spending $3 🙌

Ummm, this place was absolutely amazing. All the exhibits are very well taken care of and all of the inhabitants seem to be very happy as well. The otters and the red fox were awesome. Honestly, there are too many things to list here that were awesome. The best thing to do is to stop reading reviews and go to the Virginia living museum! It’s worth it, especially if you have children too!

Had a great time at the living museum. It was my daughter's school field trip, and there was at least 10 other schools there as well and it wasn't as bad as you'd expect. My kids had a blast looking at all the different animals and exhibits, and loved the hands on exhibits. Sadly towards the end, they got sick of walking and just wanted to go home. Great place and experience overall.
