Commemorate Constitution Month at Montpelier
For over two decades, Montpelier has served the public with Constitutional education and engagement. We educate teachers, law enforcement, international groups, and every day 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.
Visit Montpelier on Saturday, September 17, 2022 for a series of panels about the state of our democracy and potential threats to our freedom. Visitors can take advantage of specialty tours, activity booths, and interactive discussions with Mr. Madison himself.
For those seeking to participate from the comfort of home, Montpelier is offering a series of virtual panels that explore what the Constitution means to all Americans.
As stated in the Preamble to the Constitution, it is “the people” who 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!
