Tours

 

MIV's Bus Tours allow members of the public to visit several Mechanics' Institutes on a day-long  bus trip. The Tour will usually stop at three or four Institutes, and often drive past several others throughout the day. These tours give an inside view of Institutes, and showcase their facilities and projects, as well as showing how different each and every Institute is.

 

Tour notes booklets are available for purchase  for each of the tours listed and mapped.
