    Virginia Science Museum

    Science exhibits and an Omnimax theater now occupy the old RF & P Railroad Broad Street Station. It was designed by the same guy who designed the Jefferson Memorial built right after World War 1. Most museums say don't touch, but the Virginia Science Museum says please touch and experiment with some things. In addition to these permanent exhibits frequent traveling exhibits come here. Exhibits are open from 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday and Sundays from 11am-5pm. Adults pay $16 for exhibits and Omnimax or $8.50 for one of each. Seniors 60 and up and active duty military get a slight discount. Museum members get a larger discount.

    Housed in the wonderful Beaux Arts railroad station that was designed by John Russell Pope, who also designed the Jefferson Monument in Washington, DC, the Science Museum is a great place to take the entire family. Lots of interesting exhibits with interactive displays that will keep the kids' interest for an afternoon. The IMAX theater and Children's Museum of Richmond area also conveniently located next door. And railroad buffs can still view evidence of the golden age of rail travel.
