Museum & Art Gallery in Roanoke, VA
The Science Museum of Western Virginia is the oldest science museum in Virginia, established in 1970 by a group of teachers and community volunteers to supply informal science experiences to enhance education in the classroom. While the organization has grown and moved into bigger and more accessible facilities, it has never strayed from its mission focus. The Museum moved into its current home on two floors of a multi-cultural building in the middle of downtown Roanoke called Center in the Square in 1983.
