Clock weights that go into the floor, Mastodon bones, double-acting doors...there are lots of things at Monticello that kids find fascinating. These special guided 45-minute tours are uniquely designed for families with children ages 5 to 11.

Featuring hands-on learning, these tours highlight Jefferson’s ideas and accomplishments and share stories of the people, both free and enslaved, who lived on this working plantation. This popular pass includes access to our gardens, grounds, walking tours, family-friendly activities, and exhibits.

Guests should plan to arrive at the visitor center 30 minutes prior to their tour start time to allow time to pass through a security screening and travel from the visitor center to the mountaintop.
