Virginia Living Museum closed due to flooding

Virginia Living Museum is closed on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Aug. 25, 26 and 27) due to an early morning flash flood.

Water came over the museum’s floodgates, inundating the entire lower level of the main museum building and the Wason Education Center early Saturday morning. No museum animals were harmed.

The purpose of the Virginia Living Museum shall be to stimulate knowledge, awareness and appreciation of the biological and physical world, and to develop an understanding of its relationship to the environment of the planet and the universe beyond. This shall be accomplished by providing a variety of living interpretive exhibits and education programs for the public, students and educators that encourage a commitment to protection and conservation of our natural world and its delicately balanced components.
