Members of the Virginia Living Museum can visit any of the 21 YMCA of South Hampton Roads locations to enjoy a safe place to exercise with state-of-the-art fitness equipment, indoor and outdoor pools, group fitness classes, and child care while you work out.

  • Virginia Living Museum members show their valid membership card, photo ID, and complete a guest waiver form upon visiting any YMCA of South Hampton Roads or YMCA of the Virginia Peninsulas location.
  • You can activate your YMCA April membership online or visit your local YMCA.
  • Pre-registration is recommended for lap swimming and fitness classes, but not to visit the Y. Pre-registration is not required for open swim, and hours vary by location.

Virginia Living Museum members who join the Y in April will pay no joining fee, a savings of up to $75!
