Where to go
The White House Visitor Center, located at 1450 Pennsylvania Ave. NW (map), offers visitors a window into the president's iconic home. Admission is free. The park's operating hours and seasons webpage lists the current hours. Security screening, similiar to TSA-style airport security, is required for entry to the visitor center.
What to see
The exhibit areas feature approximately 100 historical artifacts, interpretive panels, looping videos of photos and archival footage, and interactive elements for visitors of all ages. Visitors can explore an interactive touchscreen tour of the White House, view over 90 artifacts from the White House collection, and view the 14 minute film, "White House: Reflections From Within." Then shop in the White House Historical Association retail store to find the perfect souvenir.
