VIDEO: MV Visits its Traveling Exhibit in Philly

It’s not easy for most people to get to Mount Vernon, so we’re bringing Mount Vernon to you. Our traveling exhibit, Discover the Real George Washington: New Views From Mount Vernon is touring the country. As of this post’s publication, the exhibit, which includes Washington’s dentures, a reproduction of Martha Washington’s wedding dress, and loads of other Washington artifacts, objects and information, is in Philadelphia at the National Constitution Center. Various staff members traveled to the City of Brotherly Love to check it out.

After September 5th, the exhibit is headed to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, where it will go on display October 15. Check out the full list of scheduled venues (while you’re on the website, be sure to visit our interactive timeline) and be sure to catch George Washington when he comes to your neighborhood.

    Ah! We HAVE been to Mount Vernon many times (and still can’t get enough of it) but we still traveled to Philly to see this exhibit! (It’s about two hours from our home.) Beautiful and well-done - a growing hallmark of everything associated with George Washington and Mount Vernon.

Portraits in Schools

Kids holding George Washington Portrait

Mount Vernon recently invited K-12 schools nationwide to request framed portraits of George Washington to display in a respectful, prominent place.

The response was overwhelming: thousands of schools submitted letters! Along with the portrait, schools received curriculum materials to help explore our first president’s contributions.
