2016 Museum District Mother’s Day House & Garden Tour

EVENT DATE: May 8, 2016

Now in its 22nd year, the 2016 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. The tour is not just about beautiful homes; each year, proceeds from this annual event are reinvested in our neighborhood for beautification and enhanced safety.

We have 9 homes featured on the tour, including the newest home in the Museum District, just completed in 2015. An additional highlight of the 2016 tour is "Art in the Alley", a private collection of South American-inspired wall art created by a Museum District resident and local artists. Be sure to take advantage of the tour trolley that will run continuously between 1-6PM, making stops at each home on the tour and the Virginia Historical Society.

The Mother's Day House & Garden Tour supports neighborhood maintenance and beautification projects as well as local nonprofits. 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.
