Wildlife Exhibits

Farm Pastures and Wildlife Exhibits, Daily, 10am-5pm (weather permitting)
$5 suggested donation

Take a walk on the wild side, or a stroll if you prefer, at Maymont’s outdoor wildlife exhibits. All exhibits feature Virginia native species (historic and present) in our 40-acre valley located between the historic estate, Children’s Farm and Nature Center. Animals in our Raptor Valley, Bobcat, Gray Fox, Black Bear, and Bald Eagle exhibits are on view daily by 10am and move back indoors late afternoon. Come early to increase your chances of seeing our wildlife when they are most active!

Animal Encounters

Join us on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm (weather-permitting) for an up-close animal encounter with Maymont’s bobcat, Monty. Maymont also offers unique animal experiences featuring behind-the-scenes tours. Find out more about these exclusive opportunities.

Animals in our Wildlife Exhibits

Animal Rescue

We do not accept wild or domestic animals from the public. All wild animals in our care at Maymont have come through licensed rehabilitators and agencies. These animals were orphaned or sustained permanent injuries that prevent them from surviving in the wild. Our possession and exhibition of migratory bird(s) is by permission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. If you have an injured or orphaned animal that needs human care and intervention, email ARK (Area Rehabbers Klub)  or call 804-598-8380. Or look for a licensed rehabilitator in your area on the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries website.


While we love all animals, please be aware that pets are not permitted at Maymont. Service animals are welcome.
