Commemorate Constitution Month at Montpelier
Montpelier has served the public with Constitutional education and engagement for over two decades. We educate teachers, law enforcement, international groups, and everyday visitors about James Madison’s unparalleled political genius as “Father of the Constitution” and author of the Bill of Rights. We are also equally committed to exploring the history of the Invisible Founders who built the nation through their knowledge, expertise, and labor.
In keeping with our decades-long commitment to sharing the story of our founding document, Montpelier has launched Constitution Month. Join our programs throughout September, including educational panels, Constitution and Bill of Rights tours, and on-site activities.
For those seeking to participate in Constitution Month from the comfort of home, Montpelier offers a podcast series - "Consider the Constitution" - that explores what the Constitution means to all Americans.
As stated in the Preamble to the Constitution, “the people” give legitimacy to the founding document. We hope you will participate in Montpelier’s Constitution Month to explore the history and meaning of our democracy and the freedoms it enshrines.
Tours are by reservation - we encourage you to purchase your tickets before your visit!
