Went here with family. Penguin movie was great. Exhibits were okay. Good for a one time visit. Walk in between buildings was nice. Easy to find.
Enjoyed visiting the Virginia aquarium while staying in VA Beach. We leve the NE Aquarium where we are from and this was a close second!
I was in the area with my 3 yr old daughter. My father was ill and we had flown out to see him. I needed something to do with her to get her away from everything else and this sure was the ticket! I had been here many times in the past with my now much older children and we... More
The Virginia Marine Science Museum is AWESOME!!!!! The best part is the hands-on exhibits like the ray/skate tank where you can reach over the side and touch rays and skates. It is a low tank like an above-ground pool so it is easy to reach over. How many museums have you ever been to where you can touch anything? There... More
We have gone back to the VAMSC multiple times a summer; we have a family membership. The presentations are fascinating enough that the kids really love to come back and run around looking at things. The facilities have plenty of restrooms and water to allow people to continue. The layout is a little confusing, and it is a long walk... More

He pretends to be the captain and he and the other children run hitting all the buttons. They have many exhibtions and hands on tanks to explore and I... More

We visited the aquarium during September as a family of four. The parking was ample and the reception area well staffed for the large number of visitors. Although not a huge aquarium, the range of animals (not just aquatic) is quite impressive. The butterfly enclosure as you enter is very nice with a very natural feel to it. There is... More
The VAMSC is a great place to take the family, no matter the age. The displays of live sea life are well presented. You can spend a lot of quality time just watching the fish swim. The I-Max productions are always spectacular. The gift shop has unique items and the cafe has good food. Once you've been, you'll want to... More
