2017 Museum District Mother’s Day House & Garden Tour

EVENT DATE: May 14, 2017

Now in its 23rd year, the 2017 Museum District Mother’s Day House & Garden Tour provides a rare opportunity for guests to go inside some of Richmond’s most beautiful and historic homes, gardens, and institutions. Be sure to take advantage of the tour trolley that will run continuously between 1-6PM, making stops near the homes on the tour and the Virginia Historical Society.

The Mother's Day House & Garden Tour is not just about beautiful homes; each year, proceeds from this annual event are reinvested in our neighborhood for maintenance, beautification and enhanced safety. The tour also supports neighborhood local nonprofit organizations. Previous recipients have included Albert Hill Middle School, William Fox Elementary PTA, Prevent A Litter Veterinary Hospital, ACTS, Fan Free Clinic and the FRIENDS Association for Children. Thank you for your interest in this special event.
