Guided tours are available for groups of 10 – 50 adults. These tours last 30 or 50 minutes. Tour dates and times are based on Docent and gallery availability. Audio tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Permanent collection tours cost $5 per person. Tours of special exhibitions will include the cost of the exhibition in addition to the tour fee. See each exhibition page for specific group rates.
Reservations: Request a tour online, by phone at 804.340.1575, or by email at email@example.com. Unfortunately, we may not be able to fulfill all tour requests as exceptions apply around holidays and tour dates and times are based on Docent and gallery availability.
Please note: One tour guide is scheduled for every 25 adults, based on the gallery. It is important that you finalize the number in your group two weeks prior to your tour so that we can accurately schedule tour guides. Should your final group number exceed the maximum allowed per tour guide scheduled, your tour may default to a self-directed visit.
