Holiday Candlelight Tours

December 5, 2019 - December 21, 2019



  • Due to popular demand, we’re adding a tour on Thursday Dec. 19th at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available below or by calling the Museum Shop at (434) 534-8120!


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.

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!
