Does our new exhibition, Thomas Jefferson: The Private Man , leave you wishing you could ask our nation’s third president some questions? Here’s your chance!

On Saturday and Sunday, meet Thomas Jefferson during one of his morning or afternoon sessions in the galleries. Portrayed by Steve Edenbo of  American Historical Theatre, the author of the Declaration of Independence will tell stories about his life, share insights into 18th-century America, and pose for portraits with you and your family!

About the Living Historian

Steve Edenbo was introduced to American Historical Theatre in 1999. He bases his interpretation of Thomas Jefferson on the insight that comes from years of reflection, for which he was awarded a Research Fellowship at Monticello in 2008 by the International Center for Jefferson Studies. Steve has the exclusive honor of interpreting Thomas Jefferson at Philadelphia’s Declaration House, a re-creation of the building in which Jefferson lived and wrote the Declaration of Independence. He has also portrayed Jefferson at the National Archives, the Smithsonian, the National Constitution Center, and many other cultural institutions across the nation.
