Contemporary art museum small but good. Edgar Allen Poe dorm room to view. Lovely but extensive campus to walk around

Beautiful Grounds and architecture in the setting of a vibrant town, Charlottesville. You can come for UVA sporting events, wine tastings, walking tours, and a host of wondering dining experiences.

My husband has always wanted to view the buildings! You can truly walk in the foot steps of Jefferson. The original campus totally in bodies his concept, while being fully intergraded into modern campus.

Just walking around the campus you can easily imagine all the famous people that have attended this school. Quite worth your time.

The campus is setup real nice and calm. All of sports displayed respect for each other's venue. Worth the visit, but maybe when its a little warmer.

Nice history and set of buildings. When we understand the dreams of Thomas Jefferson, it’s a perfect connection of the American way of life.

The tour is not necessary. You can definitely appreciate the architecture without it. I'd say tour is more for prospective students.

You do not need to make a reservation. You just need to show up at the gallery at the scheduled times. You can find the tour times and location on the college website.
