White House

Recommended
For almost two centuries the White House has been the home of America's first families. More than just an official residence, the stately structure has become a universally recognized symbol of the US presidency. Today its public rooms house an exemplary collection of Americana, both furnishings and historic memorabilia, reflecting the tastes of the nation's leaders. You can tour the public areas of the White House by reserving a tour time through your member of Congress or embassy; a stop in the White House Visitor Center is also a good way to get oriented to the mansion's history and architecture.
