**UPDATE ON OPERATIONS OF THE PORTSMOUTH MUSEUMS REGARDING THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS**

Out of an abundance of caution and due to novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), all City of Portsmouth’s Department of Museums (including the Children’s Museum of Virginia, the Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center, the Lightship Portsmouth Museum, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Museum, and the Portsmouth Colored Community Library Museum) are closed to the general public until further notice. The decision to modify city operations follows the Governor of Virginia’s emergency declaration and the uncertainty of COVID-19.

Please stay tuned for updates as they become available on our museum website.

Welcome!

The Children’s Museum of Virginia is a place where families and caregivers with children ages 1-11 are encouraged to imagine, explore, and discover together through play. Children step inside a world where bubbles grow bigger than they are, where the forces of energy electrify and spark their imagination, where they can be a farmer, a banker, a scientist, a stargazer and more.
