Every tour is different! The tour guides each craft their own tours, incorporating different stories and different themes. There is no set “script” for our tours.
Tours begin in the Small Special Collections Library. The They run every day (except home football game days) at 10am, 11am, and 2pm, and they last about one hour.
No reservation is necessary for the regularly scheduled historical tours, but if you have a large group and would like a tour at a different time, please use our tour request form.
Please note that the Guide Service does not offer tours during UVA’s Winter Break, spring recess, during exam periods, or over the summer.
