In 2006, Mount Vernon opened its new Ford Orientation Center and Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center featuring 25 state-of-the-art galleries and theaters that reveal the fascinating story of George Washington's life through interactive technology and original artifacts. The museum features six permanent galleries and a changing exhibit including some objects shown at Mount Vernon for the first time.
The 66,700-square foot complex was built under the four-acre pasture just inside Mount Vernon’s main gate, mostly underground in a low-lying area, to preserve the historical features of the Estate and Gardens.
