We strive to connect visitors with our remarkable collection of artifacts, manuscripts, and artwork. Visiting groups are encouraged to call ahead to arrange for a guided tour with a museum educator or choose a self-guided tour and view the museum at their own pace.

Guided tours

Your time at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture can be enhanced by booking a guided tour, whether you’re in town for a family reunion, looking for an activity for your church group, or interested in a corporate outing for your employees.

We require a minimum of ten people for a guided tour. Reservations for a guided tour must be booked at least three weeks in advance.Your group can choose to explore the The Story of Virginia or one of our other long-term exhibitions. Fill out the group reservation form. Guided adult tours price at $10/person. 

Please view our tips for your visit before bringing your group to the museum.

Self-guided tours

We request that groups of ten or more inform us of their plans to self-guide through the museum in order to be eligible for the group discount rate of $8/person. Groups of fewer than ten people do not need to make a reservation to view the galleries on their own. We do not offer guided tours without a reservation.
