TEMPORARY CLOSING: November 1, 2019 – Early Spring 2020
The Robins Nature & Visitor Center is closing temporarily for renovation of the exhibits and lobby.

Maymont’s Nature Center holds close to 30,000 gallons of aquaria that showcase many of the animals, aquatic and terrestrial, that inhabit the waters and land of the James River and the Chesapeake Bay. Our animals have very important roles as educational ambassadors, so come explore and learn all about them. The Discovery Room is open and available when a volunteer is present – be sure to ask Guest Services at the front desk, you don’t want to miss this hands-on learning experience!
