What is there to do?

The Children's Museum of Virginia is an interactive fantasy land full of roleplay opportunities, rides, educational exhibits and much more.

Give them the run of The City! We’ve made it kid size and theirs to explore from the bank to the market, from the fire engine to the pet area. Get the inside track on Trains. Little kids (and big ones, too) love trains, and oh, have we got a huge collection of trains! Clanging and puffing and zooming like you knew they could. Adhesion. Cohesion. And bursts of Laughter.

It’s the new Bubble Room. Make them. Pop them. Stand inside one! Once your child has experienced standing inside a bubble, science will never be the same! Inspire tomorrow’s Stars. Nothing quite amazes or inspires a child like that first trip to a planetarium. Take that trip with them at the Children’s Museum.
