Virginia Living Museum
Walk on the Wild Side for Flood Relief
On Aug. 25, water from a flash flood inundated the entire lower level of the main museum building and the Wason Education Center. This was the worst flooding in the museum's 45-year history, overwhelming floodgates that were designed to withstand a 100-year flood.
Much of the damage will be covered by insurance, but the museum must raise $50,000 to meet the insurance deductible. This is the second time this year that the museum been flooded and the second time it must meet the insurance deductible.

Walk on the Museum's Outdoor Boardwalk trail before opening 8:30-9am Monday through Saturday during October (two loops of the trail equal a mile). Walk any day as often as you like during October.
