Exhibit Update: General George Washington's Headquarters Tent
We recently installed one of our most iconic surviving artifacts from the Revolutionary War, the field tent used as General George Washington's wartime headquarters. Where Washington strategized, wrote dispatches, and made key decisions that would change the course of history.

The process to conserve and display this three-dimensional textile has been one of the most complex and complicated preservation projects in generations, involving structural engineers, historians, tailors, conservationists, curators and others over the course of several years.
Visitors to the Museum will conclude their core exhibition experience in Washington's Tent Theater, an innovative, multi-layered, mixed media presentation in a dedicated 100-seat theater.
