We're in the Inspiration Business!

We're a bunch of lively, fun, creative, and innovative life-long learners with a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences who all play a special part in bringing science to life for guests every day.

The Museum's dynamic team of staff, volunteers, and interns has the unique opportunity to spark curiosity, encourage discovery, and generate ideas in science, technology, engineering, and math. We're highly collaborative, we aren't afraid to try new things, we value exceptional customer service, we work quickly, and we recognize a good idea can come from anyone in the organization. If you're energetic, insatiably curious, and a little bit quirky, we can't wait to see how you can share your time, talents, and passion to help the Museum grow.

The Museum is a state agency under Virginia's Secretary of Education. Staff positions are posted on the Virginia Jobs website.

Our goal is to stimulate interest in the sciences, encourage inquisitive minds to seek answers, and connect our exhibits to the world around us.
