As "out of towners" we had a great time at the Virginia Living Museum as a family. Both my toddlers (boy and girl) are dinosaur lovers and that is what attracted us there! They had so much fun and we made some beautiful memories! I would have gave the museum 5 stars but they had NO FOOD VENDOR 😣 That was a lot of walking and exploring to not have any food or drinks available for purchase. Aside from that, an awesome place to visit especially with small children.

No issues at all, they were expecting me when I arrived using this purchase method. Enjoyed the morning, great place for families and good for maybe 3-4 hours. Sadly the cafe was closed when I was there
