Abbitt Planetarium

Virginia Living Museum, 524 J. Clyde Morris Boulevard
Newport News, VA 23601

757- 595-1900

The Virginia Living Museum is designed to show the relationship between people and the natural world, especially as it relates to the environment of Virginia. In the Abbitt Planetarium, we extend and enhance this idea, showing how Virginia is only a small part of the Earth, and how the Earth and the people living on it relate to the environment of the universe around them.
