Over the course of two weeks in April 2007, George Washington's Mount Vernon made a nightly transformation from stately 18th-century home to Hollywood film set during the creation of National Treasures: Book of Secrets. Learn how Mount Vernon participated in the production of this film while protecting its own national treasure, the home of George Washington.

Included in this approximately hour-long specialty tour is the Mansion's basement and cornerstone, the setting for a pivotal scene in the film.

A portion of the tickets for this walking tour are offered in advance and the remainder are sold at the ticket window on the day of the tour.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Please allow at least 10-15 minutes to walk from the main entrance to the tour’s starting point at the Mansion Circle.
