Scheduled Activities

Open House – 9:30am – 4pm; A self guided experience through the Madison home allows families to move through the house at their own pace. Strollers, food, and drink are not permitted in the house.

Drop-in Activities

Catalog Artifacts – If you think you have what it takes to be a curatorial mystery solver, you can put your skills to the test! Try your hand at cataloging special artifacts, or play a game of “I-Spy” and see if you can uncover some of the artifacts on display with Montpelier’s Curatorial and Collections staff.
Vote For your Favorite Artifact at our mock voting booth.
Historic Preservation Station – Learn about the tools used to preserve the Montpelier buildings.
