The health and safety of our employees and everyone who visits the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is our highest priority. As part of our pandemic response to coronavirus (COVID-19), and out of an abundance of caution, The Fed Experience museum will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience and will provide more information about reopening the exhibit in the weeks ahead.

Step 1: Register your group

Bring your students to the museum Monday-Thursday at 10 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.

Summer Camp Challenge (June - August)

Summer Camp Challenge is a program offered to summer camp groups from June - August. The program is offered Tuesday-Thursday at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Large Group Public Tours (20-50)

Tours are available to business, civic and other groups of 20 or more Monday-Thursday at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Small Group Tours (5-19)

If you are a school or summer group, please register for a school field trip or summer camp challenge in order to receive age-appropriate tour activities.

Step 2: Review visitor guidelines

To ensure a safe, educational and fun visit for your entire group, please review and follow these guidelines:

  • Recruit chaperones: one adult is required for every 10 guests under the age of 16.
  • Divide and conquer: split your class into smaller groups and assign a chaperone to each group.
  • Make sure that students stay with their assigned group/chaperone at all times while in the museum. Count your students before you arrive and before you leave the museum.
  • Teachers and chaperones are welcome to join in discussions, encourage student participation and help them relate activities to what they have been studying in class. However, please refrain from answering questions that are intended for the students.
  • Food, beverages and gum are not allowed in the museum.
  • Silence cell phones.
  • Be considerate and respectful to the staff and one another while in the museum. For your safety and the safety of others, do not run outside the bank or in the museum.
  • Comply with all directions given by Law Enforcement and Economic Education staff. Any individual or group whose behavior is disruptive will be asked to leave the museum.
  • In case of an emergency, immediately notify Economic Education staff or a Law Enforcement officer.

Step 3: Consider pairing your visit with a nearby attraction
