The Science Museum of Virginia is a catalyst for inspiration, a place that sparks curiosity and generates ideas. Through hundreds of experiential exhibits, awe-inspiring artifacts and interactive technologies, the Museum presents dynamic programming to hundreds of thousands of guests each year. The Museum features permanent exhibitions about space, health, electricity, and the earth—to name a few—and they host visiting exhibitions from around the world. The new permanent exhibition Boost! has quickly become a visitor favorite. The Dome theater, at 76 feet, is the largest screen in Virginia and provides guests with the ultimate immersive experience.
