    National Treasure was not as interesting as I hoped. But the grounds and the view of the Potomac are still gorgeous.

    I love history & to be able to walk the same stairs and halls of our great and first President was a thrill for me. The gardens are fabulous! Be sure to visit the tomb.

    A must visit when in DC or Virginia. Beautiful gardens and daily demonstrations of what life was like in the 1700s. Lots to see between the house, museum, and the tomb. Different every season.

  • Pablo R.

    very informative, glad to see the museum is as worthwhile as the mansion and grounds

    Beautiful. It was amazing and a lot to see. Very impressive property.

  • Chris H.

    Hold onto your Mount Vernon entrance ticket when you leave and use it at Washington's distillery just a few miles down the road! Definitely worth the additional stop!

    In the spring visiting the sheep area is a must especially when the lambs are out.

    If in by boat, eat on the boat to conserve time for walking to the various sites.

    After the tour, come to the back of the house. One of the best views of the Potomac.

    Plan on spending the day! We didn't see everything and were there for nearly 8 hours. We did the movie, mansion, dinner tour, lunch, wharf, farm, education center. Missed the museum. A favorite place!

  • Brandon H.

    I Love this place so much it's like my home! Check out the Potomac view, the tombs&the educational center. Make sure to go on the forest trail! Oh yeah, maybe touring the house would be a good idea ;)

    So much inspiring art and history. The Learning Center is where the action is, but museum is far quieter and displays the dramatic original art you come to see.

    Stan Harmon · April 24, 2013
  • James F.

    Make your BM early for any race starting here! The lines get long!!!

    James Freeman · April 21, 2013
  • CJ W.

    Travel just west of the estate and see Mount Vernon as visitors would when they first arrived. You can easily see how they would be impressed, if not slightly in awe, of his home.

    CJ Wallington · April 20, 2013
  • Dwayne K.

    Home of our 1st President, this place showcases how Washington lived. Be sure to take it all in, especially with this place a bit off the beaten path and away from the heart of DC!

    You can buy tour tickets on line, strongly recommend. Definitely go through the educ museum inside, very interesting!

    Not only is this educational, it's eventful. In every room, George Washington is reflected in the furniture, lighting, etc. The garden is spectacular in the spring and you may even see his dentures!

    Social News Network · February 14, 2013

    Wonderful! A must see for all Americans!!!

    Tickets are timed entry to the house, but you can wander the grounds while you wait.

    Matt Forshee · December 30, 2012
  • Stephanie W.

    Check it out!!!

    Stephanie White · December 14, 2012
  • Andy M.

    If you're a local, consider getting the $25 yearly pass instead of the standard $15 one-time admission.

    Andy McMahon · November 20, 2012
  • Elena

    The estate is lovely; the food court, not so much. George and Martha would be embarrassed at the high prices and poor selection. Bring your own!

    Mount Vernon is home to our first President, George Washington. Kids will love the interactive museum & parents will love the rich history. Enjoy the beautiful gardens & views of the Potomac!

    beautiful gardens

    William Thorne · April 8, 2012
  • Phillip W.

    Don't wear your good shoes because all the walkways are dirt.

    Phillip Williams · April 3, 2012
  • Kelly O.

    If you are in a time pinch and want to make sure to tour the mansion, buy an annual pass (an extra $10) and you can bypass scheduled tour times and go directly into the mansion.

    Kelly O'Keefe · April 2, 2012
  • Ching Y.

    Take your time while visiting this place. Lots of history here, and eat lunch at the inn next door!

    Don't eat at the restaurant mediocre

    Barbara Vanbiber · February 22, 2012

    Love how all the guides call him "the General." Also, you can bring your dog! (But not in the house or museums.)
