Loading Events

Tour the president’s cherished hideaway decorated for the holidays on these hour-long tours. Experience the villa by candlelight while your guide paints a portrait of the ways the Jefferson family and their enslaved workers spent the holidays, by sharing true stories and anecdotes gathered from Jefferson’s letters and diaries. Admission is $20 per person; reservations are required.

Tour schedule:

  • Thursdays, December 5, 12 and 19 at 5:30 p.m. each evening
  • Fridays and Saturdays, December 6, 13, 20 and 21 at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. each evening

Helpful Tips:

  • The tour is partly outside at night. Please bring a flashlight so you have better visibility.
  • The ground is grass with no paved path. You may want to wear flat shoes.
  • Dress warmly. It will be chilly at the start and the end of tours.
  • All tours end with a visit to the restored kitchen and a cooking demonstration. You will smell like smoke after the tour so clothing that is easily washable is a good plan!
