VISITOR ENGAGEMENT AT MONTPELIER
Montpelier’s Department of Education and Visitor Engagement gives voice to the past and the present, interpreting the research and scholarship of our colleagues to make history come alive for visitors.
The goal is to make Montpelier a transformative, inclusive, immersive, and numinous place where diverse visitors cultivate a deeper understanding of the history and relevance of the U.S. Constitution and the arc of citizenship through conversations and constructive thinking about the individual and shared experiences of James Madison and the Montpelier community.
Educational and Interpretive Initiatives
The Department of Education and Visitor Experience is involved in a number of projects to bring the stories of the people who lived and worked at Montpelier to life for visitors. Take a look at the various projects that the department is undertaking!
