See the historic George Washington House, where America's first president (before he was a politician) resided for two months in 1751 with his ailing brother. Manicured gardens surround the two-story traditional house, which features a pastel yellow façade accented with green shutters. Learn about why George Washington came to the country through a series of informative tour activities. Walk around the originally preserved house as musicians dressed in period costume serenade you. You can also experience Dinner with George, a five-course candlelight dinner accompanied by music and a living history version of the man himself.

    Visited this place for the Café outside the museum, offers good quality food and the atmosphere is brilliant. It has a nice terrace next to the Museum garden.
