Children's Museum of Virginia, Portsmouth
All-new! The largest children's museum in Virginia with 72,000 sq. ft. of fun, interactive, hands-on things to keep kids bodies (and minds) entertained for hours including: Bubbles; Working Port; Tot Yard; Lancaster Antique Toy and Train collection; My Backyard and Beyond; Dr. Forces Traveling Energy Extravaganza; and a lot more.
"It's the only museum where you can come and touch things. [At other museums] you have to walk around, keep your hands in your pockets. Here we say go up, touch it, play with it, push it, figure out what makes it work."
