We bought combination tour tickets at the visitors center for the National D-Day Memorial and Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest, at a cost of $17 each.
Nice welcome center with courteous staff, plenty of info, cool fire truck and informative video on D-Day.
I highly recommend parking here, spend the day, and walk back after the fireworks(it is well lit and a path along Colonial Parkway is specially designated for folks to travel on back to the Visitor's Center).
The visitor center also features a couple of shops, a snack bar type place to eat, and air conditioning, which is much appreciated on a hot summer afternoon!
Separate reading room, a geneology library which focuses on local and VA resources but also includes other states; the reference and resource staff are very knowledgable and helpful.
This lovely building is a treat, but the archives are a fabulous resource!
Lots of genealogical resources

We spent an entire day researching genealogy in this massive modern facility, and the resources and staff were fantastic!
Excellent resource for the city and travelers as well needing a local library.
A headstone from the Monroe Hall property is here, and I think it should be on display at the visitor center in that location.
Absolutely the BEST Visitors Center we have ever experienced - we highly recommend making this your first stop when visiting Lexington ....and allow time to take in all it has to offer.
Being able to park the car in the visitor center lot for free and walk to the attractions was a great bonus and saved us from searching for parking and trying to navigate in unfamiliar surroundings.
