Fodor's Review

At the Virginia Living Museum, visitors are transported to a steamy cypress swamp and cool mountain cove, the underwater world of the Chesapeake Bay and the underground realm of a limestone cave, all with living exhibits and hands-on activities. The planetarium theater was renovated in 2008. View the sun from the observatory. Outdoors, a 0.75–mi boardwalk features animals native to Virginia in naturalized habitats and wildflower gardens.
