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 weekend 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! 🌇🗝
