The Newly Renovated Theater is Now Open

Exclusively at Mount Vernon, this unique theater experience highlights Washington's role in the Revolutionary War complete with snow, fog, cannon shots and other 4D effects.

The Revolutionary War Theater—where cannons fire and snow falls every day—is one of Mount Vernon’s most popular attractions. Here our guests learn about George Washington and the three campaigns – Boston, Trenton, and Yorktown—that led to victory in the War for Independence.

The theater has undergone a major renovation with thanks to the Robert H. Smith Family Foundation with all new 4D effects, designed to bring these historical moments to life.  The new media presentation, infused with cutting edge animations, falling snow, theatrical lighting, fog, and gripping live action sequences, will make you feel like you are standing right with Washington.

This new presentation is generously sponsored by the Robert H. Smith Family Foundation.
