The Science Museum has undergone a dramatic renovation of its home in Center in the Square. The museum continues to reinvent not only the exhibit galleries, but also the entire museum and its connecting spaces, classrooms, and programs in order to transform the way visitors engage in learning science. The museum now features the Healthy Bodies Gallery, Healthy Earth Gallery, an expanded How it Works Gallery, Living River & Touch Tank, Maker Lab, and The Bubble for preschoolers. The Butterfly Garden at the Science Museum of Western Virginia will be closing on August 15, 2017, for the transition from an exotic butterfly habitat to a native pollinator garden. The Hidden Garden will open this fall with a variety of local butterflies and flowering plants. Throughout the time that the garden is closed for renovations, Science Museum visitors will be offered a butterfly garden rain check with their paid admission so that our guests will be able to return and enjoy our new Hidden Garden this fall.
