Tour to Gemological Institute of America
We have a gem of a tour opportunity available for PagodaFest. As a Friday afternoon leisure activity we have arranged a private tour of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) museum. We expect to have a tour bus for the group, picking up after lunch (12:45PM Sharp!) at the Flower Fields and then returning back to the Flower Fields at the conclusion of the 1.5 hour tour.
You will need to make a careful choice of what you would like to attend: the exciting Pagoda technical sessions, or a building filled with sparkling gems…
Visit PagodaFest.com/gia for tour information. The tour is limited to 45 people, first come first served. Sign-up will close on 20 Sept 2019. We will need to get the names of the tour participants to the museum three days ahead of the tour. They tend to be kind of picky about just leaving the doors open! Each guest requires a government issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.) and only guests that are listed will be admitted onto the campus.
This is a fabulous museum tucked in the confines of the GIA campus just minutes away from the Flower Fields venue.
To add yourself to the GIA Excursion list please send us an email at with the subject line "GIA Excursion". Please include your full name in the body of the email. First come, first served. We do have a minimum of 30 for the tour bus, so let us know as soon as you can.
We will notify you in September if you made the list.
