Member Travel

Due to the unprecedented and rapidly evolving threat of COVID-19, VMFA Member Travel programs scheduled to depart through the end of July, 2020 have been canceled or postponed. At this time, there are no changes for our trips scheduled to depart after July. However, we will be updating this page and the status of these trips as necessary.

The goal of the Member Travel Program is to provide stimulating combinations of discovery, culture, good fellowship and educational travel opportunities for a unique community drawn together by membership in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  Early registration for travel opportunities is a benefit beginning at the Patrons membership level. After this period, registration is open to all members on a first-come, first-served basis. Travel the world and enjoy VMFA’s Art-Focused Itineraries. Exclusive travel opportunities are a benefit of VMFA Membership.

Registrations for Member Travel trips can change from day to day. To ensure that space is still available, please contact the tour operator directly using the phone number provided in the trip brochure.
