Learn about Thomas Jefferson and take a tour inside his estate.

Thomas Jefferson designed and began the initial construction of this home in 1769. Many of the materials and workers involved in the building process came locally. There are 33 rooms, 8 fireplaces, and 13 skylights inside this multi-level house and about 60% of the furnishings are original. The monticello is open for tours daily. Guests can choose from self-guided or behind-the-scenes tours inside the monticello. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9:30 am to 5:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 am to 6 pm. 

There is also a garden and grounds pass for those who wish to walk around the outside. Don’t forget to walk along the Saunders-Monticello Trail, which has beautiful views of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. This 4-mile trail is open to the public year-round and is ADA accessible. If you follow the trail all the way, you will end up at the Thomas Jefferson visitor’s center. Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello is a great sightseeing attraction in Virginia, come and see it for yourself.
