Virginia Beach Museums

Besides outdoor activities, Virginia Beach offers amazing indoor opportunities to learn and be amazed. The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center features animals and opportunities to learn about sea life firsthand, including petting stingrays in an interactive tank.

If animals are your thing, or your kids’ favorite, then you can also visit the Atlantic Waterfowl Heritage Museum and the acclaimed Virginia Living Museum on the Peninsula.

For non-creature features, check out the Virginia Air and Space Museum, the Old Coast Guard Station Museum, Nauticus or the Tugboat Museum to recognize the area’s contributions to our nation’s industry.

You can find many other museums to suit your taste, large and small, around the Virginia Beach area.
