We want your students to meet the real George Washington!
That’s right! President and Mrs. Washington are arriving in September for an extended visit, and we want to make sure your students get to see them. Discover the Real George Washington: New Views from Mount Vernon, organized by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, will be on view at the museum from September 10 through January 21, so make your field trip plans now. Your students will see more than 100 original artifacts associated with George Washington, including the only surviving complete set of his dentures! The N.C. Museum of History is the only venue in the Southeast on the exhibition’s tour.
There is no admission fee for school groups to tour Discover the Real George Washington! Thanks to the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, your school may also qualify for grant money to pay for your students’ transportation to Raleigh. For more information on how to apply for a transportation grant, contact Debra Nichols at 919-807-7986 or email@example.com. You simply can’t afford to miss this exhibit!
