Student Field Trips
Student field trips at Montpelier include a guided tour of the Madison's home, through spaces where James prepared for the Constitutional Convention; where Dolley entertained guests like Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de Lafayette; where James' personal servant, Paul Jennings, witnessed history in the making.
For no extra charge, teachers can select up to three additional activities for their students. These programs finish the job, "giving life" to the historical topics covered by Montpelier's interpretive staff.
