A very special Thank You to everyone that supported our wonderful Grand Opening on May 24. It was a special night to open and share this incredible museum and community space at the center of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. Many of you purchased plaques for our Legacy Wall, donated in-kind gift, purchased raffle tickets, and even volunteered your time to let us open the doors to a new era for the Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum.
June will be a busy start to the Summer season. We’ll be open seven days a week through the season and don’t forget, admission is free for kids this year! Children and Youth up to 17 years old enjoy free admission to the galleries during the day.
Of course, our popular Ghost Walks are back! You can enjoy the haunted tales of Virginia Beach each Tuesday and Saturday night beginning at 7pm. We’ve extended the program this year to include some time after the Walk for your own Ghost Hunting in the historic building.
Happy Hours are back as well, with free admission, music, and snacks each Wednesday night from 6pm to 8pm. This will certainly be a fun way to enjoy the museum exhibits and each other’s company all year long.
New this year is our Second Sunday Sunrise Yoga program. We are so pleased to partner with Virginia Beach’s Collective Yoga studio to offer Community Yoga Classes on right on the beach here at 24th Street. The class is purely donation based and all are welcome. We kick off the classes on Sunday, June 10, at 6am. We’ll have some coffee time afterward right inside the museum.
We’ve also added some sunrise fun for the Runners and Walkers this year! Run With The Sun will offer a sunrise 5K each and every Friday morning. Enjoying the sunrise is one of the truly special things to do on your visit to Virginia Beach. So if you are a runner, or walker, or just want to give it a try, please join us! Starting on Friday, June 1st, we will gather at the museum each Friday morning at 6am. These runs are free and open to all.
With our new exhibits, free admission for kids, and and lots of interactive things for your family to share, you’ll be sure to enjoy your time here at the Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum. Let’s get the Summer Season started!
