Group Tours

Groups of 15 people or more are eligible for hands-on and artifact-driven programs, where we guide you through the complexities of the Civil War and its legacies. All programs can be adapted for various ages, interests levels, and abilities.

Students from Richmond and Maryland participated in Homeschool Day on October 19, 2016. Related programs were held at the Museum's Clay Street and Historic Tredegar locations.

Student/Youth Group Tours

During field trips at ACWM, students become historians, exploring primary source documents and artifacts to delve deeply into the human stories of the Civil War. Using historical and critical thinking skills, students investigate peoples’ lives, the impact of war, and how echoes from the past surround us. All of our student programming aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning and Common Core.

  • Every 10 students one chaperone is admitted free.
  • A “group” requires a minimum of 15 people. Programming is available for smaller groups if they pay for the equivalent of 15 individuals.
  • For youth groups, rates include museum admission, a classroom program, and a site-specific program experience. Additional experiences can include more programs at the same or different Museum locations.
  • Programming depends on availability.
  • Payments are due upon arrival at the museum. Groups must pay as a group (one payment for the whole).
  • Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Cancellations less than 24 hours in advance of a scheduled booking and/or “no-show” groups still are responsible for paying for their originally booked reservations.
