Tredegar History Tour
May 27 @ 11:00 am – 3:30 pm
Step back in time & immerse yourself in the fascinating history of Tredegar Iron Works with our new “Tredegar History Tour”! Located in the heart of downtown Richmond, our museum is situated on the very site where the iron foundry once stood…
Did you know that more than half of the cannons used by the Confederate army were cast right here at Tredegar?
Or that the thick armor plating that protected the ironclad CSS Virginia during its famous battle with the Monitor was rolled on these very grounds?
Join us this Memorial Day Weekend (Saturday-Monday) at 11:00am or 2:00pm to explore one of Richmond’s famous historical sites, and learn about the cannon-making process in a special site tour included free with Museum admission. You don’t want to miss it!
