Imbued with tradition, the Lee Chapel is a gathering place for the University's most important academic events. Concerts, lectures and other University activities take place regularly in the 500-seat auditorium on the main level and its balcony.

A state-of-the-art museum is housed in the lower level and includes Lee's office; an exhibition entitled Building and Rebuilding a Nation, which traces the contributions to education that George Washington and Robert E. Lee made; a changing exhibition; and a museum shop.
