Put yourself in George Washington's boots with Mount Vernon's newest interactive experience!



Included with general admission

Step inside our immersive theater, located inside the Donald W. Reynolds Museum & Education Center, where a defining moment in the American Revolution or Washington’s presidency will unfold in rich media on a massive 6K-resolution screen.
Listen to Chris Jackson of the original cast of Hamilton narrate the scenario, take a seat at an interactive kiosk, and watch advisers like Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison appear on the screen. Choose whose counsel you wish to hear and consider their advice on real challenges in history.

From there, it’s your turn to act—decide your course of action and learn how Washington handled the same dilemma.

Each Be Washington scenario takes an estimated 18 minutes to complete. This experience runs continuously from 9am-5pm.
