The expansive Shop at Monticello presents an extraordinary collection of items available for purchase. In the David M. Rubenstein Visitor Center, courtyard level, the Shop is open daily.
The book section offers more than 250 titles—including one of the most comprehensive selections of Jefferson-related books available anywhere—and comfortable reading chairs. Other departments of the store contain exclusive Monticello reproductions, educational games and toys, home décor pieces, Virginia wines, gourmet food products, posters and prints, collectibles, and souvenirs.
The Shop also features an indoor/outdoor garden space, open year-round, where you can buy Monticello's popular historic plants and seeds, harvested from plants grown at Monticello, as well as a wide range of gardening accessories.
An additional shop—on the mountaintop under the North Terrace of Monticello—provides a convenient selection of gift items, beverages, and snacks.
