Children's Museum of Richmond

Children's Museum of Richmond

Last week my family of four visited the Children’s Museum of Richmond. I won’t lie, admission fees sometimes deter me, but C-MOR offers an annual pass for families, and not just families of four. Families of five, six, eight, … however many children you have in your household, you’re all covered for one year for $100. Admission for the four of us for one day cost $32. That annual pass was an easy sell. We’ll recoup that money in just a few visits, and when we travel across Virginia, we can get into other children’s museums for free! Not to mention a 10% discount on gift shop purchases when the inevitable, “Can I have it? Puhleeaase?” rings out.

Whether you’re a Virginia resident or a frequent visitor to Virginia who is looking for ways to stretch a dollar and still have fun, the annual family pass at the Children’s Museum of Richmond is a great option to consider. Virginia sister museums offering recirprocal admission under the pass are:

In addition to these Virginia museums offering reciprocal admission, there are more than 100 others nationwide that your family can take advantage of as well.

Have fun and save a dollar or two doing it! To begin planning your Virginia vacation, visit or call 1-800-Visit-VA to request your very own Virginia is for Lovers Travel Guide.

This is a really great post, I’m glad that you put this content out there for everyone, and I’m sure that others feel the same way!

Dear Xander,

I am the fundraising assistant at the Virginia Discovery Museum in Charlottesville, Virginia. I saw your comment and want to assure you that you and your children are *always* welcome in our Museum. We pride ourselves in offering an experience that is “enlightened and truly welcoming” to any and all definitions of family. We hope you’ll consider visiting us sometime. In fact, call me at the Museum when you and your family visit (phone number at and we’ll offer you a free day pass so you can see how diverse and welcoming we are. Not all of us agree with McConnell’s designation either (as an aside 🙂 🙂 Best wishes to you, and warm regards from one enlightened Virginian, Jenee Libby

We hope you’ll reconsider a visit to Virginia. Your family is most welcome and there are so many historical beginnings that one can only experience in Virginia. Your children would learn so much from Jamestown and Williamsburg, just for starters.

Thank you for your comments and we do hope you will give Virginia a try.

Best Regards,

Don’t you mean Virginia is for straight, White, unmiscegenated Southern lovers? If I am a mixed race gay family with children (which I am), why would I want to come and spend money in your state? I know that mixed race couples are permitted in your state and that gay sex is no longer illegal. But that took two Supreme Court decisions to get to this point.

There are so many places to go in this country and not enough time to visit them all. I want my children to experience an enlightened and truly welcoming and accepting environment.

Oh, by the way, Happy Confederate History Month, too.

Dear Xander,

In addition to the ultra conservatives that characterize the Bible belt, there are lots of creative, highly educated, ultra liberal and gay friendly families who not only accept diversity of all kinds, but seek it out and welcome it for the enrichment of their own and their childrens’ lives. Leadership and activism is about fostering a new future, not succumbing to past, historical roles and views. Do give us a try…one size does not fit all and there is a cross section of people wherever you look.
