New Ways to Experience Monticello Again: Let’s Make a List of Traditions

I recently visited Virginia Tech for the Virginia Association of Museums Fundamentals Forum (sorry, Hoos).  I had heard about this tradition or right-of-passage before, but while at Tech I heard someone (a student who had actually done it) mention the tradition of exploring the steam tunnels under the campus.  Since then, I’ve looked into it, and there are lots of other Hokie traditions.

A hands-on activity center for children Monticello visitors—especially those ages 6 to 12—can literally get in touch with American history in the Griffin Discovery Room through hands-on activities.
