A guided tour of the Workhouse Arts Center is the perfect way to discover the amazing history of the 55-acre campus, included in the National Register of Historic Places.

Our guides will lead you on a personalized tour of our artist studios and galleries, theater, classrooms, and assorted interesting nooks and crannies. Along the way, they’ll also share stories of the history of the Workhouse, including its life as the DC Correctional Complex at Lorton, its role in the Women’s Suffrage Movement of the early 1900s, and of the site’s eventual transformation from prison to regionally-recognized visual and performing arts center.

Guided tours are ideal for groups of eight or more searching for an intimate look at our campus. All guided tours are free but must be booked at least two weeks in advance. Please note that if you are interested in visiting the Workhouse Prison Museum, docents are available only during limited hours.

For more information about guided tours, please call us at (703) 584-2900.
