The Virginia Living Museum (VLM) invites you to maneuver your way through a mind-boggling collection of mind-bending adventures, 3-D puzzles, and full-body games in an unforgettable adventure that’s sure to challenge, entertain, and amaze visitors of all ages.
The Mazes & Brain Games exhibit, Jan. 21 – Apr. 23, winds its way over 9,000 square feet through more than 60 puzzling experiences that inspire exuberant exploration and ingenuity. Test your perceptions and laugh your way through the maze of illusions, a feast of visual trickery. Master the many tricks around each corner and find out why illusions help us learn how our brain works. Run a marathon with your fingers on the Finger Mazes, or become a “webmaster” by climbing through an intricate web of ropes without getting tangled in the Web Maze. Grab an instrument and lay down a fresh beat in the Music Maze. Wrap your head around the Puzzle Maze, and get lost in a network of color in the Color Maze.
Stargazing at the VLM begins at sunset on the second Saturday of every month. Guests can enjoy the views from several telescopes set up on the grounds, with staff astronomers available to help identify objects in the night sky. After gazing at the night sky, head indoors for a planetarium program and several laser shows. Shows are $5 for VLM members, $8 for non-members. (NOTE: Stargazing events are weather dependent. Due to the close proximity, guests are required to wear masks while operating the telescopes.)
