Rare Opportunity to Step Inside Replica of Washington's Sleeping and Office Tent at George Washington's Mount Vernon

In 2013, the Museum of the American Revolution commissioned Colonial Williamsburg’s Department of Historic Trades to create an exact replica of one of the greatest treasures in its collection—George Washington’s sleeping and office tent. This replica, which has been used by conservators and exhibit designers as a “stunt double” for the original tent as they plan for the installation of the fragile original artifact in the Museum—will be on display May 2-3 at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
