A decade ago, the people who run Mount Vernon noticed many of their visitors knew little more about George Washington than that he was the country’s first president.

Beginning Friday, visitors there will be able to learn much more about him in two new buildings. On their way to the historic mansion, they’ll pass through an orientation center where they will get history about Washington and his home (one short film is narrated by game show host Pat Sajak). And on their way out, they will pass through an extensive museum and education center.
