About the Donald W. Reynolds Museum & Education Center

Visit the Museum and Education Center to view the fascinating array of Mount Vernon artifacts and learn more about George Washington. There are 23 galleries and theaters where visitors learn about Washington through interactive displays, an action adventure movie, short films produced by The History Channel, immersive experiences, and a rich and comprehensive collection of more than 700 objects which give an unprecedented look at the personal effects of the Washington family.

Experience Lives Bound Together: Slavery at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, which explores the personal stories of the people enslaved at Mount Vernon while providing insight into George Washington’s evolving opposition to slavery.

Make sure you don’t miss Washington’s dentures, an interpretation of Martha Washington’s wedding gown, and a ledger book used to keep track of estate finances.

The Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association opened the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center in 2006.  These exhibit spaces would not have been possible without two major grants, totaling 24 million dollars, from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and support from the foundation’s chairman, Fred W. Smith.
