Make a Visit to Montpelier Part of Your Plans!

On Veterans Day, Montpelier says "thank you" to all U.S. military service members and their families by offering a free one-day property pass to the grounds, as well as a free "Highlights of Montpelier" tour to service members. At the David M. Rubenstein Visitor Center, browse our Museum Shop, which offers a wide range of locally-sourced products, jewelry, and books. Veterans will receive a 10 percent discount on any purchase!

Bring your walking shoes and hike Montpelier's 8+ miles of walking trails through horse pastures, wildflower meadows, and old-growth forests. Explore the award-winning The Mere Distinction of Colour Exhibition. Visit the Annie duPont Formal Garden, Mr. Madison's Temple, and the Madison family and slave cemeteries. Learn about archaeology in our Archaeology Field Lab and at our active dig site.

Please note: Tour availability is limited, and advance online purchase is recommended. On the day of your visit, check in at the Ticketing Desk to receive your discount. The Property Pass discount will also be applied onsite. Free tours do not extend to service members' families.
