Bass Pro Shop Virginia
Using more than 3, 500 area artifacts, antiques, pictures, mounts and memorabilia, the store becomes a living museum of Virginia's hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor legacies. Hand-painted murals from renowned artists depict scenes of the Virginia countryside from the Appalachian Trail and the Blue Ridge Parkway, to the James and Chickahominy Rivers to the Shenandoah Valley and Chesapeake shores. Smoky-blue mountains, verdant lush forests, pristine beaches and old mills and tobacco barns are all beautifully replicated by artists' brushes. State and record wildlife mounts are displayed alongside local period prints depicting early Virginians enjoying sporting adventures. Kids of all ages will enjoy the laser arcade themed as a Virginia tobacco field and an old cabin. The arcade features 56 animated targets. Over-run with wild 'critters', it seems a group of them are sitting near the front porch of the cabin for a good, old-fashioned jam session complete with dulcimer, washboard and washtub bass. A still, wagon and hogshead (an old-time piece of equipment used for transporting tobacco) complete the diorama.
