Revs Institute Tours

The Revs Institute, WFFMM, and NAAM have agreed to delay the conference until April 28-May 1, 2021. This is to ensure the health and safety of our staff, guests, and sponsors. In addition, we wanted to give the museums and venues enough time to begin their financial recovery. As much as possible, the conference will go on as planned.  The basic calendar and events will remain on schedule, just at the April-May dates.


Revs Institute is excited to welcome conference attendees to explore the museum, library, and archive. Revs Institute will offer tours of the museum as well as behind-the-scenes tours of areas that visitors do not usually see. Attendees interested in exploring Revs Institute must reserve their spot on a tour while registering for the conference, as there is limited space on each tour. Each tour of a specific area will be offered more than once during the conference.

Revs Institute strives to make all visitors feel welcome. Please note, certain areas of these behind-the-scenes tours are only accessible by stairs.
