James Madison’s Montpelier

Montpelier is more than just the home of one of America’s Founding Fathers. It’s a place where we can learn how our Constitution affects our everyday lives. It’s an ongoing archaeological dig that tells us more about 18th century life every day. It’s a destination for anyone who wants to know more about how the thinking of James Madison changed the world.

As a memorial to James Madison and the Enslaved Community, a museum of American history, and a center for constitutional education, Montpelier engages the public with the enduring legacy of Madison’s most powerful idea: government by the people.

The Montpelier Museum Shop is located at the David M. Rubenstein Visitor Center and is open 5 days a week, Thursday through Monday, 11am to 4:00pm. Shop for seasonal gift items, gourmet food and wine, locally sourced pottery, and much more. Don’t forget to explore our huge selection of books!
