When possible, we ask that field trips be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. Tours for March, April, and May fill up quickly, so please book as early as you can for those months!
Review our Tips For Your Visit and Bus Parking Map with your students and chaperones before you arrive at the museum. Buses should drop students off at the rear of the building at the Marcus and Carole M. Weinstein Learning Center and then park in front of the museum along Boulevard.
My students had a blast during their tour of the Story of Virginia exhibition! The tour brought to life for the students the subjects that we discuss in the classroom! The museum gets an A+ from my students!
Groups are welcome to visit the Virginia Museum of History & Culture on their own, but we encourage that all school groups speak with the Manager of Museum Programs before their visit in order to guarantee space in the galleries. We also have a variety of activities that we can provide for your group. For more information, contact Maggie Creech at 804.342.9652 or mcreech@VirginiaHistory.org.
