Undergoing construction now. Will be ready with new section by October. It is a guided tour and was delightful. I didn't see any time schedule for the tour. Might want to check on that before going.

Q&A with the Director of Public Relations and Marketing

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

Many of our tour guides have been with us for many years and are very passionate about Richmond history.

What special training do you or your staff have?

We offer a Guide School every few years through the University of Richmond's Professional & Continuing Studies Program. There are 10 classes and then a test is given. Upon completion and passing the test, a new guide must shadow a senior tour guide. Senior tour guides do research and develop tours for the upcoming seasons.

As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?

We are constantly refreshing the information for each of our tours. Our tour guides do a great job of conducting this research.
