More than 85 million people have visited George Washington’s Mount Vernon since it officially opened to the public in 1860. In addition to the tomb of George and Martha Washington, Mount Vernon includes a memorial dedicated to the enslaved people who lived and worked on the estate, as well as interpretive spaces such as the Pioneer Farm and George Washington’s Gristmill and Distillery. Through self-guided visits, formal tours, exhibits, and special events, a visit will help you better understand Washington’s ambitious and profitable business ventures.

Mount Vernon tours include the Mansion, built in 1735 and expanded over five decades to 21 rooms (see a virtual tour here), outbuildings, gardens and grounds, heritage breed animals, Pioneer Farm, and more. Plan your visit here and see how much estimated time it will take for each feature.

George Washington’s Mount Vernon is open 365-days a year and is located at 3200 Mount Vernon Memorial Hwy., Mount Vernon, VA 22121. Plan ahead and visit on a day with special events, including story times, Tribute at the Tomb, unique children’s activities, and more. Connect: Online | Facebook | Twitter.
