To mitigate the spread and impact of the coronavirus, the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association has temporarily closed George Washington's Mount Vernon to visitors.
This decision reflects the necessary precaution to ensure the safety of our visitors, our staff and volunteers, and their families. This closure impacts the Mansion, grounds, museums, library, as well as all retail shopping and dining facilities.
During this closure, Mount Vernon will continue its mission to educate people around the world through its robust digital presence. Mount Vernon will provide virtual tours of the estate and interviews with its on-staff experts through its Facebook and YouTube accounts.
The Washington Library has also prepared digital resources for students and their parents and will be working with its network of teachers nationwide to support their educational efforts. These resources can be accessed at mountvernon.org/digital.
The health and safety of our visitors and staff are Mount Vernon’s highest priority. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and will update this page as the situation evolves.

Guests holding event tickets or reservations through June 15 have been contacted regarding refund and rescheduling procedures. If you have questions related to admissions or events, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For information about future events, visit our calendar of events page or individual event pages. This site will also be updated as new information becomes available.
