Revs Institute is delighted to welcome conference attendees to explore the museum, library, and archives. Revs Institute will offer tours of the museum, as well as behind-the-scenes tours of areas that visitors usually do not see. Attendees interested in exploring Revs Institute’s workshop and library 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. Please note, certain areas of these behind-the-scenes tours are only accessible by stairs.
