Coming January 26th: Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails Step inside the World’s Most Beloved #1 Blue Engine! Welcome to the Island of Sodor! In Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails visitors find themselves surrounded by the island’s iconic locations: Knapford Station, Sodor Steamworks and much more. Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails! was created by Minnesota Children’s Museum, presented by Fisher-Price and sponsored by 3M. It is being locally funded in part by the Norfolk & Portsmouth Beltline Railroad.
The Children’s Museum of Virginia is designed for young children and their families, but we know that big kids like to play as well. Out of courtesy to our visiting families and to maintain a high standard of safety for our groups and general visitors, the Children’s Museum of Virginia asks all unaccompanied adults to leave a driver’s license or government-issued photo ID at the admission desk while exploring the museum.
