White House Visitor Center Rehabilitation

The remodeled visitor center is designed with a strong focus on accessibility for all visitors. The project team worked closely with the National Center for Accessibility to achieve a fully accessible experience.

All new interactive and tactile exhibits offer visitors a greater chance to find their connection to the President's House. Fore example, visitors will be able to touch tactile maps, pieces of stone used to construct the White House, and replicas of significant objects like the North Portico door knob . Visitors with vision or hearing impairments may request equipment at the information desk to experience the comprehensive audio tour for the museum's exhibits and interactive elements (all film and audio components are open-captioned).


Local Access

The National Park Service provides a wheelchair on loan free-of-charge on a first-come, first-served basis for a maximum of two hours at the Lincoln Memorial, Ford's Theatre, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial and other parks. You will be asked to leave a driver's license as security. Please ask a park ranger for assistance.
