    What a great value–a $25 day pass entitles you to guided tours of the house and grounds. One thing I will do next time is be sure to start early–there is a lot to explore. The history of Jefferson’s life and home is worth learning more about. Guide was extraordinarily knowledgeable and professional, as were all the staff we ran across.

    This is a great place to visit. Thomas Jefferson played a huge part in US history, so visiting his house and learning more about him, his personal life, and his role in history should definitely be on your list if you plan on visiting Charlottesville. Its an absolutely beautiful, well maintained facility. The employees are friendly, and a lot of hard work goes into keeping this place running.

    Even though we unexpectedly had to pay to walk the trail to the house, we had a nice time. And of course we couldn’t go into Monticello, but there is lots to see outside. Some nice grounds ladies brought us some water. Nice new-ish visitors facility. Friendly people. Nice trails to walk.

    Yeah well you’ve heard about it all your life but haven’t bothered making the trip yet. Understandably so, I too always thought I’d get round to seeing it one day. And finally like rain on your wedding day, it happened. Surprise surprise. I spent considerable time in the well stocked museum store, almost worth the trip just for that. Monticello to me wasn’t that exciting but I was glad I went. The slave quarters were interesting as well as the working part of the farm. Didn’t know Jefferson made nails? A pleasent day if you’re not rushed. Do read all the little plaques, you’ll learn a lot of little tid bits for your next cocktail party.

    Absolutely worth a visit if you are ever in the region. The tour was amazing and the visitors center was equally great. The cafe was a pleasant surprise. The food was very good and not overpriced.
