The Virginia Living Museum is one of my favorite places to visit in Hampton Roads. Not only does it offer a very educational experience for adults and children, they also have wonderful events throughout the year such as their Night of the Living Museum event. Below find a press release on this upcoming popular event. Don't miss out on the FUN!
