Driving Directions

Since this year's Reptile Festival cannot be hosted at the museum, we're bringing this year's Reptile Festival to audiences online!

On Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13, the museum will be providing reptile-themed videos highlighting some of the most intriguing and inspiring animals that call Virginia (and elsewhere) home!

From snakes to lizards to turtles, the museum's researchers, educators, and reptile experts from around the Commonwealth will be showing-off some of the unique creatures of the reptile world...even fossils of reptiles long extinct!

Sad you'll miss-out on festival staples, such as face-painting and balloon animals? Don't be! Our talented arts and crafts vendors will be providing instructional videos on how you can conduct these activities at home on your own!

All videos will be posted periodically throughout the days of Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13 on the museum's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/VirginiaMuseum.  Special thanks to The Helen S. and Charles G. Patterson, Jr. Charitable Foundation Trust for making this event possible.
