Museum Will Reopen May 28 at 9:30 a.m.

The Virginia Discovery Museum will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 27, as we remember those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf. From May 18 through Sept. 2, 2019, VDM is proud to be a Blue Star Museum and offer free, all-day general admission to the Museum during the summer for active-duty military personnel – including National Guard, Reserve, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, and NOAA Commissioned Corps – and up to five family members. VDM also extends this program benefit to military retirees and veterans. The Museum’s regular hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. To learn more about Blue Star Museums, please visit the program page or call (434) 977-1025 x103.
