Jefferson is one of my favorites. Taking to tour inside Monticello was a great experience. I would suggest visiting in mid-Spring. The gardens were in full bloom. I suppose Fall would be a nice season as well as Monticello has great mountain and valley views.

Generally great. However, I was disappointed about the somewhat over the top narrative on slavery. While of couse slavery was a significant part of US history and sadly Jefferson's legacy, the video they show in the visitor's center hardly says anything about the man or his achivements.

It's a great way to spend an afternoon and learn about how life worked on a plantation - which just happened to be owned by Thomas Jefferson. It provides a good perspective on the man and his life after leaving DC.

Monticello was great, although I did not gain any respect for our nation's third president. I am convinced now more than ever that Jefferson was a very wealthy and very indebted insane person. His love for material wealth, especially his bondspeople (slaves) in addition to all the other stuff he owned, certainly set him apart from the people he "governed" back in the early 1800s. I can definitely see why Jefferson compared the British to the drivers of slaves in the Declaration of Independence (that portion was edited by the Continental Congress) and it never occurred to him that perhaps his own slaves might have wanted to be free. Jefferson viewed the world with ideological blinders on and viewing his estate shows how and why it was so difficult for him to try and view the world from the perspective of the have-nots and those bound to service to him and to other "masters." It's probably important to mention as well that Jefferson's legacy as president is not very good. The Embargo doomed that and folks back then thought he was crazy. Jefferson was indeed one of our insane presidents, along with Nixon, LBJ, and a few others.
