  • Great orientation video to what you will see and not want to miss while at Mt Vernon. I loved the historical part about Colonel Washington.  more »
  • After finish touring the property, we ended up in this museum/theater. The 4D theater was very cool and educational. I was pleasantly surprised from the film.  more »
  • This building is essentially the beginning of your journey through Mount Vernon. It is where you can grab brochures, sign up for a tour, and just prepare yourself for your visit to George Washington's estate. It is a very spacious building and feels very inviting. It's also here where you buy your ticket and go through a light security check. Prepare yourself here because once you exit the building it feels like you are traveling back in time.
  • George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate puts on a big celebration of the first president's birthday each year. This would have been the 287th birthday. The public was invited for free tour of the mansion and grounds. The day was capped off with birthday cake and a concert from members of the U.S. Air Force Band.
