The Museum is a state-supported agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia. It is part of the Education Secretariat, which provides guidance to seven arts and cultural institutions in addition to Virginia’s public colleges, universities and research centers.
The Museum receives guidance and generous support from organizations and community leaders. Our Board of Trustees, appointed by the Governor of Virginia, provide oversight and policy guidance. The Science Museum of Virginia Foundation, a non-profit corporation, raises funds to support the Museum’s mission, operations and to meet capital needs.
