Montpelier is fun for all ages!
Its 2,650 acres give kids a chance to run, play and enjoy the country. The young ones enjoy seeing the horses in the fields, and watching the train go by under the bridge. For restless children under six, the mansion hosts a “Children’s Getaway” with educational toys, books, and a rocker for mom and dad. The Courtyard Café has high chairs so the whole family can enjoy a bite to eat.
Kid-specific hands-on activities include:
Dolley’s Kitchen — Learn how food was prepared, stored, and cooked in Dolley’s day.
Kid-Sized Archaeology — At the archaeology lab, dig for treasure like a real archaeologist! See the drawers of discovered artifacts and use the touch screen to learn how archaeologists work.
Hiking Trails — Montpelier features 3+ miles of easy-going foot trails through old growth forest where children can learn about Virginia's native flora.
