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.
