Ticket prices are subject to change.

Note: Each adult ticket includes a $3 National Park entrance fee. Entrance fees are used for the operation of National Parks. As a Fee Demonstration Area authorized by Congress, 80% of all the entrance and user fees collected at the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial are retained in the park. The remaining 20% of funds are made available for use by all other National Parks. The funds are used for maintenance and the preservation of historic and natural resources, as well as for improving visitor services.

Visitors may purchase tickets in person for the day of the event. However, you can save time by purchasing tickets online. A $3 processing fee is charged per transaction for this service. Advanced individual tickets are sold on-line only and must be purchased by 11:00 p.m. the night before your scheduled visit. Lines may become long throughout the day, so it is recommended that visitors come early to increase their chance of purchasing a tram ticket. Groups of 20 or more may call in advance for reservations.
