We strongly recommend purchasing tickets in advance, as we’ve greatly reduced our daily capacity at Monticello to facilitate physical distancing. The Monticello Self-Guided Pass (which includes access to Monticello's first floor) and the Gardens and Grounds Pass are available for advance sales online.
We’ve introduced enhanced safety protocols, and a redesigned, family-friendly experience. Self-guided tours and new, outdoor educational stations allow you to enjoy Monticello at your own pace. And photography is now allowed inside the house!
Update on May 14, 2021. For the time being, we are continuing our policies regarding Covid-19 mitigation, including requiring face coverings for all staff and guests age 5 and up indoors, and in crowded locations outdoors. Please check back for updates, and check out our Reopening FAQs to learn more about our efforts to make your visit safe and enjoyable.
Enhance your visit with our new mobile Scavenger Hunt. Use your smartphone to complete unique challenges - snap photos, explore new spaces, test your knowledge, and share your thoughts. FREE with admission.
