Presidents Day Weekend Activities


Feb 15, 2020 to Feb 17, 2020
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Presidents Day was first celebrated in 1879 to commemorate the birthday of General George Washington, who moved to Philadelphia as the first president in 1787. In the museum’s core exhibit, see Washington’s War Tent, a dramatic theater presentation of the field tent that served as Washington’s wartime headquarters. Washington’s “military family” of soldiers, enslaved people and servants made this possible.

At an interactive Discovery Cart, learn the story of Harry Washington, who escaped from Mount Vernon and fought on the other side of the Revolutionary War.
