Know Before You Go
Look carefully, as you'll find the continents of the world all etched out, and you can suddenly feel as if you're controlling rotation of your own personal Planet Earth! The Science Museum of Virginia is found in Broad Street Station, an old, historic train station just outside to the west of Richmond's downtown core. The museum is easiest to find off of Exit 78 on I-95, where you use the Boulevard to get to West Broad Street if you’re coming from the north and Hermitage Road if you're coming from the south. Take a look inside the museum for all things science while you're there ($14 to get in), and if you have time, swing out back to the old loading platforms where they have the original, much darker Grand Kugel still on display.
