The tour was very informative and interesting. The guide seemed to know his information, and also enjoyed telling it. He answered whatever questions were asked of him. The museum has some interesting items; many of the items are in big drawers that must be opened...More

The grounds and buildings are at first unassuming. We thought we had arrived at the wrong place. Since it was a weekday in November there were few tourists. We opted for the (very affordable) tour after perusing the museum in the main building. There are...More

Same area as River Rose paddle boat.....very informative when you take the tour. The 18th century stone house is where General George Washington brought the Revolutionary War to close.

The guided tour is a must to get into the George Washington's house and see how our first president was living at the time. Very interesting if you are a historic buff.

For a small museum and a relatively small house there is a real lot of history. The tour guide was fantastic. The tour is only $4.00. Worth seeing.

Visiting Washington's Headquarters and Museum was incredibly interesting! The home is from the 1700's and the separate museum is the most state of art museum I have ever visited. George and Martha stayed at this home for a very lengthy 16 months. It was not...More

I'm not certain. Maybe go to their website for hours of operation, or call? I don't see why they wouldn't be open, but again, I am not certain.
