The Virginia Discovery Museum is a resource for all children of our community. Children learn best in an inclusive environment where our differences are celebrated. As it has done for the past three decades, VDM will continue to serve the interests, needs and abilities of children of all backgrounds. We are committed to enabling our community's youngest members to play and learn together in a joyful, safe, and loving environment.

Little Free Library

Take a Book. Share a Book.

The Virginia Discovery Museum’s Little Free Library was built and donated by the St. Anne’s-Belfield School 7th and 8th Grade Leveling the Playing Field Quest in May 2019 as a way to spread a love of reading and learning and make books more accessible to all children in the community. The library is located in the front lobby, and Museum visitors may take a book to keep, borrow a book and return it later, or donate a book for someone else to enjoy.
