This former plantation is an interesting place to visit. The mansion and grounds are used for festivals, concerts, and the year Shakespeare in the Park. I love visiting Montpelier. You can also take arts classes at the Arts Center here. I go here often
We did a self tour of the Mansion and the grounds on a cold frosty day. It was pretty empty and so we had the whole place practically to ourselves, not considering the staff, who were really nice and friendly. The entrance fee is $5 per person, which is nothing for a place like this. It has several acres of... 更多
We have visited for both types of experiences. It is a superb venue, whether for an art exhibit or recital. Many outreach educational programs as well.
most people dont know about this place but you get a feel of another era when you go there. The architecture is interesting and expansive gardens relaxing.
The playground is a great way to introduce young children to history. They can wind up a bucket at the well, give a Punch & Judy puppet show, visit the town square, play house in the historic Summer House at the end of the historic boxwood maze, try their hand at tavern games, build with life-sized Lincoln logs and much... 更多
We went on a day when there wasn't a docent, just a self-guided tour-but the pamphlet we got had a lot of information. Admission is $5.

My daughter (19) and I just happen to stumble on this little treasure (thank you Trip Advisor) when we were in Columbia, MD. Well kept, friendly staff, and rich in history. They have a self paced walking tour complete with a booklet to guide you through each room describing each room in detail. Definitely worth the stop.
We were the only visitors the day we attended. We took the self-guided tour and appreciated being able to take our time. It was very interesting to see the period pieces and stroll the grounds.
