Becoming Mount Vernon

Becoming Mount Vernon

Slated to open in February 2022 to commemorate the 290th anniversary of Washington's birth, Becoming Mount Vernon will put on view more than 350 objects drawn from our unsurpassed holdings of fine and decorative arts, architecture, archaeology, books, manuscripts, maps, and photography. Many, including the priceless Houdon Bust, have been restored and preserved thanks to prior donor support.

Protecting the health and well-being of Mount Vernon's guests and staff is our highest priority. We follow the Governor of Virginia's guidelines for events and gatherings and all protocols set forth by the CDC and the Fairfax County Health Department. Please note that the event details may alter given changes in these regulations, and we will inform all guests of such changes expeditiously.
