VLM Adventure Weekend

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The Virginia Living Museum is celebrating Adventure Weekend with a three day weekend of activities and programs.

The Adventure Weekend will be on February 16 -18 as part of Presidents’ Day holiday with “Footsteps in History” which covers over 400 years of Hampton Roads history told by the Rainbow Puppets.

Activities included are: Corn Hoop Games, Knot Tying, Oyster Reef Pop-up Discovery Station, Rope Making, Corn Grinding, and a Fire Starting Demonstration starting at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. (Saturday and Monday only).

An artifacts table and collection items will also be on display. Activity times vary daily from 9a.m. – 5p.m.
