In the Be Washington exhibit, It’s Your Turn to Lead! Visitors now have the chance to put themselves in Washington’s boots and experience firsthand the leadership challenges that he faced on the battlefield and in the presidency. 

Inside the immersive theater, participants will take on the role of George Washington as they seek to solve one of four crises that Washington faced. Each scenario unfolds upon a massive, 30-foot, 6K resolution screen. As they learn about the situation, participants will gather insights and opinions from some of the same historical advisers that Washington would have had access to, such as Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton. As they sift through differing recommendations, they will be asked to rate each adviser’s persuasiveness. In the end, as Washington, participants will vote for which course of action they would have taken to solve the crisis. Votes are then tabulated and shared, in aggregate, on the main screen. You can also explore the scenarios online and play at home or in the classroom at bewashington.org
