Galleries & Exhibits

Research & Collections

Montpelier maintains several exhibit spaces in addition to the refurnishing projects in the mansion. Visitors can view rare and significant objects related to the Madisons in the Grills Gallery and tour Marion duPont Scott’s famous “red room” in the William duPont Gallery at the Visitor Center. Panel displays provide information about the use of the cellar spaces in the self-guided basement of the mansion. In June 2012, a panel exhibit on the War of 1812 was installed in the second story of the mansion. Archaeological collections are on display in the archaeology lab.

Exhibits at the Visitor Center

The Joe and Marge Grills Gallery and William duPont Gallery in the Montpelier Visitor Center house rotating exhibits relating to the Madisons, duPonts, and other topical installations.
