Come Visit: Mount Vernon is unaffected by the federal government shutdown and will be open today.
Do you have what it takes to be one of Washington's spies? Go undercover and test your spycraft skills as you explore the grounds of Mount Vernon with our new Agent 711: Revolutionary Spy Adventure App. Solve ciphers, decode messages, and tackle challenges, all for the cause of liberty, and all on your smartphone.
But be careful-- the enemy may be watching.
Your mission: go undercover to assist General Washington, America’s first spymaster, by solving puzzles and searching for clues as you explore Mount Vernon... where things aren't always as they seem! Tackle eight challenges, each inspired by popular Revolutionary War-era espionage techniques, from ciphers to secret ink.
Download the app on your iOS or Android device-- either at home or on our free estate-wide wifi network-- to begin the adventure. The app is powered by iBeacon/ BLE sensors that send messages straight to your device, delivering clues and challenges as the adventure unfolds.
As you solve each clue, you will be directed to the next location, where another challenge awaits. When you've completed all of the tasks, you will earn the title of "Spy Master."
The game takes approximately 40 minutes to complete. While appropriate for guests of all ages, the challenges are best suited to visitors ages 8 and up.
Mount Vernon is grateful for the generous support of this organization that shares our commitment to patriotic and historical education efforts.
