Undergoing Innovations

From the majestic Broad Street Station to the sleek and modern Dewey Gottwald Center, the Science Museum of Virginia has something to offer for any occasion.

We are currently innovating our facility rental policies, procedures and pricing to ensure that we provide the best possible experience. As we streamline this new process, we have suspended booking events temporarily. But fear not, we will return soon and look forward to hosting you in the future!
