Take your kids on a scavenger hunt across the Mount Vernon estate.

Free to all guests with the cost of admission.

Written clues and colourful pictures guide families on an exploration of nine locations on the Mount Vernon estate. On one side is a map to help you find your way. Each stop that contains a clue is clearly numbered on the map.

At each location, read the clue and look around carefully. You may also want to read the green signs. Write your answer in the blank spaces. One letter in each word will be in a box. After you have visited all nine stops, use the boxed letters to solve the word puzzle about George Washington.

After you complete the word puzzle, have your answer checked at the Guest Services desk in the lobby of the Donald W. Reynolds Education Center and Museum. If your answer to the Adventure Map’s word puzzle is correct, you receive a special prize!
