January 6, 2016
Fending off cabin fever, Northwest? We might know the cure: Head to the Children's Museum of Virginia! Open Tuesdays through Sundays, this Portsmouth venue is more of an entertainment venue than an actual "museum." That's thanks to the facility's two floors of interactive, educational exhibits, all of which are designed to pique the imagination and curiosity of the young and young and heart.
For example, little ones can create giant bubbles, then go grocery shopping within the museum's simulated supermarket, sized just for them. There are also exhibits pertaining to pets, art, transportation, and music, along with a Thomas and Friends play area. These permanent exhibits are complemented by the Children's Museum of Virginia's roster of daily activities, which has been newly revamped for 2016. Included with museum admission, the activities span make-and-take crafts, paper airplane races, and obstacle courses to STEM workshops and interactive story times!
