Self-Guided Tours at Pamplin Historical Park

Explore our 424-acre park, historic homes, museums and battlefield with your students while learning at your own pace. Each self-guided tour reservation can include up to two in-person programs led by one of the park’s educators. You can utilize several teacher resources such as the “Walking into History: Field Trip Planner” which will enhance your experience with activities and provide suggestions to promote interactive discussions with your students.

Park visits range from two to six hours depending on the itinerary and interests of your group. While here, your group can visit four antebellum homes and tour a National Historic Landmark battlefield. Our four fascinating museums explore the lives of common Civil War soldiers, life in the antebellum South, slavery, and the decisive Breakthrough Battle of the Petersburg Campaign in 1865. The park’s showcase, the award-winning exhibit “Duty Called Me Here,” combines recreated historical environments with an outstanding collection of artifacts. It also features dramatic, interactive audio-tour devices that put your students in control of their journey.
