Do you want to visit Monticello but are unable to get here in person? Now you can get guided tours of Monticello from wherever you are with our new hour-long Live Virtual Tours!

Live House Virtual Tour

On this tour, a Monticello guide will lead you in real-time through the first floor of Thomas Jefferson’s mountaintop home. You will get a private, unobstructed view of the house and collections and discuss important issues such as Thomas Jefferson’s role as a nation builder and Monticello as a plantation powered by the labor of enslaved African Americans. Offered at 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Live Slavery at Monticello Virtual Tour

Join a Monticello guide for a tour of the Monticello quarters, and along Mulberry Row, the industrial hub of the Monticello plantation.  Guides will share stories and answer questions about the enslaved African Americans who lived and labored on this plantation, confront Jefferson’s conflicting ideas on freedom and race, and discuss legacies of American slavery. Offered at 2 p.m. on  Saturdays.

Live Gardens and Grounds Virtual Tour

This tour illuminates the plants and landscapes of this iconic historic site.  Guides will share stories about enslaved gardeners and agricultural laborers, share Jefferson’s ideas about farming and gardening, and show online guests what’s in bloom at Monticello. Offered at 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
