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.
