Make a self-guided tour of the estate, with sweeping views of the Potomac River, and discover how Washington created the fine landscape and beautiful gardens. Witness the final resting place of George and Martha Washington, the Slave Burial Ground, the Orangery, Slave Quarters, as well as many period outbuildings containing historical artifacts such as George Washington's carriages.
Next head inside the museum and education center where you will see original objects, such as his famous dentures. Watch the American Revolution come to life in a 4-D theater where it snows every day. Also located in the education center is the new first-person interactive experience, 'Be Washington' which uses immersive media to put you in Washington's position as you tackle the same tough leadership challenges he faced as general and as president.
Visit the fully functioning reconstructions of George Washington's Distillery and Gristmill, located 2.7 miles from the estate's main entrance (April - October, free shuttle service provided). See the mighty gears turning and the stones grinding at the Gristmill, where Washington produced flour and cornmeal. And within the functioning distillery, once one of the largest whiskey distilleries in America, you can see where George Washington's whiskey is still made.
