Hands-On Science at VMNH
Are you looking for fun, hands-on activities during spring break? Children and visitors of all ages are invited to take part in hands-on science programs at the Virginia Museum of Natural History on Tuesday, March 21 (9 a.m. to noon) and Friday, March 24 (2 to 5 p.m.). Join museum staff and volunteers as we split rocks in search of 220 million-year-old plant and animal fossils from the nearby Solite quarry, a world-renowned Triassic fossil site. *You may have the opportunity to identify and take home your very own fossil!
This program is provided with regular admission or membership, and no RSVP is required. We look forward to seeing you at the museum!
*Scientifically significant fossils may be retained by museum scientists for future study.
