Mount Vernon — once home to the United States' first president, George Washington — is located just outside Washington, DC. With your admission ticket, you may spend as long as you'd like there on a visit that includes the mansion (most visitors spend at least three hours at Mount Vernon). Your time at the estate is flexible except for entering the mansion, which is done at preselected time slots; choose a specific time when booking.
When you arrive, exchange your voucher for a ticket and then, while in the Ford Orientation Center watch an introductory film that presents a historical overview of key points in Washington’s life. Visit the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center to see a collection of more than 700 objects, including Washington's dentures, and immerse yourself in the Revolutionary War 4D theater, where cannons make the seats rumble and snow falls, to learn more about Washington's leadership during the war for American Independence.
Take a complimentary shuttle to Washington's merchant gristmill and the whiskey distillery (open from April through October), which both generated substantial profits for the Virginia gentleman farmer. You can also explore the Pioneer Farm a five-acre site where Washington's progressive farming practices came to life and walk among the English-style garden and grounds. Be sure to pay homage to the president and first lady at the Washington Tomb.
At your prebooked time, head to the mansion, an iconic, red-roofed residence that began as a modest farmhouse in 1735. Admire the architectural features and design of the now-resplendent 21-room home. Time inside the mansion is typically 15 to 35 minutes.
