The Visitor Center stands as a beautiful gateway to Jefferson's timeless Monticello. Located on the lower slope of Monticello mountain, the center is comprised of five pavilions situated around a central courtyard. The three-level, 42,000-square-foot center offers guests fresh perspectives on Monticello and the enduring significance of Jefferson's life and ideas.

  • Monticello as Experiment: 'To Try All Things' explores Jefferson's use of Monticello as a laboratory for his belief that "useful knowledge" could make life more efficient and convenient.
  • Making Monticello: Jefferson's 'Essay in Architecture' showcases the architectural origins, construction and four-decade evolution of the Monticello house, widely regarded as one of the icons of American architecture.
  • The Words of Thomas Jefferson brings Jefferson's thoughts to light through projection in an innovative display.
