George Washington’s life, character, and leadership are just as relevant today as they were in the 18th century. It is only with your support that we can keep history alive by preserving and maintaining the museums, artifacts, educational buildings, and outreach programs that bring our greatest national hero to life for millions every year
Touring the estate is a living history lesson. We offer engaging, hands-on educational resources and experiences that tell the remarkable story of George Washington. Our Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center features galleries and theaters where visitors learn about Washington through interactive displays, short films, immersive experiences, and a comprehensive collection of objects.
Teachers receive an immersive 18th-century experience while diving deep into rich content and innovative teaching techniques. They collaborate with visiting scholars, fellow participants, character interpreters, and Mount Vernon staff. Our program is designed so that each teacher returns to their communities and shares newly learned content and skills, magnifying the impact of George Washington resources reaching students nationwide.
