Mansion tours are complemented by galleries, the Museum Shop, an archaeology lab and active archaeological dig sites, gardens, 6+ miles of forest trails, and award winning BBQ at the David M. Rubenstein Visitor Center's Exchange Cafe. Located 25 miles north of Charlottesville and 4 miles south of historic Orange on Route 20, Constitution Highway.

They are not open 7 days a week. They are closed Tuesday and Wednesday much to our dismay. There is no place to park an RV anywhere near there in order to stay an extra day for them to open.
