Summer Public Tours

Get a behind-the-scenes look at VIMS

Reserve a space for our weekly public tours to learn more about VIMS. These 1.5 hour guided walks are most interesting for adults and older children. The tours are scheduled for the summer months and generally include a visit to the VIMS Visitors Center and Aquarium, a VIMS research laboratory, and the VIMS Teaching Marsh. Reservations are required by Wednesday of the tour week; please call 804-684-7846 or visit the VIMS Events calendar for dates and to register online.

Special group tours can be arranged throughout the year. Please call (804) 684-7846 or e-mail [[programs]].

All tours begin in Watermen's Hall. Click for directions and a campus map.
