Parents, need a Friday night out? Let the Virginia Discovery Museum watch the kids while you enjoy some much-deserved time to yourselves! VDM offers Date Night Drop-Offs once a month from Fall to Spring. Drop your children off for an evening of fun and adventure as we have a pizza dinner, plenty of play time in the Museum Galleries, and lots of crafts and activities. Themes change every month, so be sure to check back here to see what’s on the way!
