Located in the Donald W. Reynolds Education Center, the Hands-on-History Center hosts programs for visitors ages 3-10 to discover Mount Vernon and the Washingtons through age-appropriate activities, crafts, and games.

Children can dress in 18th-century clothing and put on impromptu plays on a stage fitted with a historic view of the Mansion. They can also read books, explore activity boxes, and "meet" the first president's farm animals.
