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.
The Bus Tour for 2020 is yet to be scheduled.
