Guided Tours & Presentations


The Reston  Museum offers guided tours and presentations, as requested. Group tours and presentations can be scheduled and held at the Reston Museum or we can come to your location (within a reasonable distance from the Reston Museum).


Tours and presentations will review the early plans for Reston dating back to the early 1960s and outline the revolutionary concepts that impacted the planning and development of communities in America. Group tours will also include a walking tour of Washington Plaza at the historic Lake Anne Village Center to illustrate the principles behind the creation of plazas, townhouses in the suburbs, public art, diversity of housing choices, protection of open space, and walkable communities with residential units, business and retail all located in one place. The content and presentation can be adjusted slightly to accommodate the age and interests of both adult and student groups.
