On Sunday, December 18th, and Tuesday, December 20th, Monticello will host a unique experience of the holidays during Thomas Jefferson’s time. These special house tours will feature an explanation of how the holidays were celebrated during Jefferson’s life. You will tour the house including the Third Floor Dome area, not seen on everyday house tours. Finally you will sample culinary delights from Jefferson’s time paired with today’s Virginia wines. You will actually receive a copy of one of eight recipes found in Jefferson’s own hand. The tours will begin at 3:30pm on both tour days, but plan on arriving early to do some holiday shopping in the Museum Shop. Your gifts will be wrapped and ready for you at 6:30pm when the special tour is completed.
These special Holiday Tours are by reservation only. The cost is $75 per person; this includes a coupon for 10% discount in the Museum Shop.
