Monticello Cuts Admission to Mark UNESCO Selection

Posted: Updated:

This weekend, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello is giving visitors a break on the price of admission. The move is in celebration of 26 years as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The cost of admission in 1987 was only $5, so that's what guests will pay Saturday and Sunday.

Monticello's Director of Education Linnea Grim says it is a great way to encourage people to come up and check things out.

"It means so much to I think everyone who is here on a daily basis, that we work at such an incredibly special site and we love sharing that with our community,” said Grim.

Tickets include a guided tour, access to the grounds, and an introductory film.
