On the next day we went to the Virginia Living Museum [ http://www.thevlm.org/ ]. This was a fun place. There were animals to see inside and outside and the opportunity to learn is everywhere. Outside there was a raised walking trail to see the animals in a natural setting. Some of the animals they had outside were injured in the wild and nurtured to health in their facilities.
Inside there were places to learn and explore including different rocks and bones to identify, animals to identify by fur and small sea creatures to see and touch. There were dinosaurs and ducks, sharks and stingrays. There were tortoises and sea turtles. And there was a child play/explore/learn area. It was a great day and we highly recommend it.
Below are just a few pictures from the collection of 230 we took this day.
