Virginia Museum Of Natural History

Virginia Museum Of Natural History

Visitors can experience the natural diversity of Virginia at this science museum, which encompasses millions of years of Virginia history. With over 22 million items in its collections, the museum is at the forefront of scientific discovery of the natural world in Virginia. Eight scientists actively engage in research on subjects ranging from dinosaurs to millipedes and the museum shares our new discoveries with exhibits, programs, publications, field trips, and teacher education.

We hope you enjoy our work.
