Mount Vernon invites homeschoolers to experience 18th-century plantation life during this special two-day event! At the Pioneer Farm, families can watch costumed interpreters produce 18th-century goods; learn about George Washington’s innovative farming practices; visit a reconstructed slave cabin; play colonial games; and see animals (such as horses, mules, sheep, and oxen). Elsewhere on the estate, families can tour Washington’s Mansion; visit our state-of-the-art Museum and Education Center; meet people from Washington’s world; and participate in a special wreathlaying ceremony at Washington’s Tomb.
Special rates for homeschool families:
$8 for homeschool students (age 6-18)
$17 for adults; free for children 5 and under
We strongly encourage that you purchase tickets in advance for this popular event.
