What is there to do?

It's all about fun and discovery at the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum, where you can find a number of fun interactive exhibits that encourage learning through play!

Kids can explore the inner workings of the human body in Health Works, where they can check for their heart beat, climb through a maze resembling the digestive tract, and even role play in a real ambulance!

Little ones can use teamwork and communication as they develop their problem-solving skills to move the apples around the packing shed with simple machinery. There are pulleys, wheels, gears and inclined planes ready to be discovered!

Ready to make some music at Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum? There is a Musical Garden where creative kids can create something magical, or the life of bees and honey is discovered in the Pollinator Plaza, where kids can actually BE the bees!

From learning about the basics of physics in Rollercoaster Alley, to being inspired by the artists in residence creating some wonderful works, this discovery museum has been designed JUST for kids, where learning IS fun!

So why not enjoy a day out of indoor fun and play in Virginia, where you never know just what you might learn!
