Thought Leadership

The Virginia Discovery Museum is not just for the kids … it’s for the grown-ups, too! Once a season, join us for a free discussion series as VDM invites guest educators, researchers, and thought leaders from our community to engage our adult visitors about child development, parenting, healthy lifestyle management, and other related topics.
