Welcome to the 2019 Museum District Mother’s Day
House & Garden Tour!

Mother's Day is May 12, 2019

Now in its 25th year, the 2019 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 1-6 PM, making stops near the homes on the tour and the Virginia Museum of History and Culture (Formerly 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, T. J. Viking Fund (Thomas Jefferson High School), PAL-Prevent A Litter Veterinary Hospital, ACTS, Health Brigade (formerly Fan Free Clinic), EnRichmond Foundation (for the benefit of Humphrey Calder Park), Friends of the Belmont Library and the FRIENDS Association for Children. We also established the MDA Educational Scholarship Fund in 2017. Thank you for your interest in this special event.

Advertise & Sponsor!

Sponsoring the Mother’s Day House & Garden Tour is also a wonderful way to honor or remember the mother in your life. With a number of options available in 2019, consider supporting this wonderful cause by sponsoring one of the houses, publications, transportation or becoming a sponsor! htsponsor@museumdistrict.org

This popular event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, residents who graciously open their doors, and the many guests who visit each year. In the 25-year existence of the Museum District Mother's Day House & Garden Tour, owners of more than 100 of the Museum District’s most beautiful and unique homes and gardens have graciously opened their doors to more than 15,000 guests.

Thank you to our 2019 sponsors!
