VMNH Traveling Exhibits

Please note that VMNH traveling exhibits listed here are available for rent by other museums and institutions. They are not currently on display at the Virginia Museum of Natural History.

Dinosaur Discovery

The exploration begins in the Dinosaur Discovery Maze! Journey back in time and make discoveries around every turn of this interactive, walk-through maze. How do visitors know they have seen everything in the maze? It starts with a Dino Passport that visitors pick up at the maze entry. Visitors then answer leading questions based on 9 activity stations found throughout the maze. Attractive dinosaur murals and specimens are scattered throughout, along with educational content about dinosaur basics.

For more information about the museum's traveling exhibits, please contact Bethany Fisher, Museum Experiences Manager, via email or 276-634-4193.
