Where are we going today?

The Virginia Discovery Museum brings young children and families together to engage minds, excite imaginations, and explore the world around them. We believe that play is learning; that learning should be fun; and that learning takes place in all aspects of our lives.

New features include the Little Cville town and the mini-Paramount with authentic dress up. Old favourites include the pirate ship themed toddler room, treehouse room with book corner, creative art studio and the permanent amazing airways exhibition.

Learning and fun are the goal. Creative play is the way!

    We visited on a Sunday with four kids, from 7months to 12 years old, and everyone had a wonderful time! I can't wait to go back. :)
