Site CLP09: Virginia Living Museum


The Virginia Living Museum, its pond, forest, and grounds, offer a chance to see 200 different species of native wildlife. Visitors can get up close to photograph and view wildlife in the wild or in the museum's exhibits. Exhibits allow close-up views of bald eagle, bobcat, cedar waxwing, eastern screech owl, hooded merganser, otter, and beaver, to name a few. The Museum's natural habitat attracts warblers, woodland birds, waterfowl, osprey, and more according to the season. The Living Museum features a native wildlife park, aquariums, living natural history exhibits, planetarium, observatory, indoor and outdoor aviaries, children's learning garden, outdoor classroom, boardwalk at the pond's edge, easy-to-walk woodland trail, backyard habitat display, and native botanical garden.
