Montpelier is the lifelong home of James Madison, Father of the Constitution, architect of the Bill of Rights, and president of the United States. Now that the home's architectural restoration is complete, visitors can see the progress of rediscovering James and Dolley Madison through the "Presidential Detective Story" with guided house tours, as well as a myriad of special "behind the scenes" experiences. They can also stroll the garden and forest; and take in the galleries, hands-on activities, and many other attractions on the estate's 2,650 acres. Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Montpelier is located in the heart of Virginia's wine country on Route 20, four miles south of Orange, Virginia., and 25 miles north of Charlottesville, Virginia. Montpelier is a National Trust for Historic Preservation site administered by The Montpelier Foundation.

Admission Fee: Adults: $18.00, Children (under 6 years): No charge, Children (6-14 years): $7.00, National Trust Members: $9.00
