Science Museum of Virginia

The kids will love the Science Museum of Virginia. Housed in a former railroad station, the museum showcases dozens of interactive experiences and exhibits -- the Foucault pendulum on the ground floor is sure to intrigue the kids. So will the live animals -- including the museum’s own rat basketball team (no joke)!
