Experience the Monticello Plantation after hours. See the full house including the upper floors and view the plantation. Learn about Jefferson and the times in which he lived, his free and enslaved families, and other enslaved and free people who lived at Monticello. This exclusive pass allows guests to explore the mountaintop after the regular closing time, providing a peace and quiet for reflection that differs from the activity of a day visit. Group size and tours are strictly limited. Come early to enjoy our Farm Table Cafe and other exhibits and activities.
