  • Very interesting. Guide was very informative. Great gift shop. Very pleasant self walking tour. Jefferson was just an amazing individual. Not perfect , but amazing.
  • Great bit of American history only somewhat recently open to the public. Great tour guide, Rob Palmer. Still undergoing restoration, so you can still see some of the unique construction methods.
  • My son's 3rd grade class went here on a field trip last week and it was a lot of fun. Very interactive and hands on for the kids. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The gift shop was inexpensive which usually isn't the case for places like this. We'll definitely go back!
  • Attended a reading of the Declaration of Independence... Very moving. Beautiful place. Should have paid more attention in history class when I was a kid.
  • Lovely experience. Take the tour to see the inside of the house. The staff preserving Jefferson's home are very careful about linking the history of the place to Jefferson and preserving his legacy at Poplar Forest.
