Permanent Exhibit Programs & Tours
Educators may add a classroom discussion and screening of the Clinton Center’s orientation film where President Clinton tells his life story in the context of the American experience during the 20th century. This will add an additional 20 minutes to your visit.
The Mini-Presidential Tour was designed specifically for our youngest student visitors. This hands-on tour encourages exploration and invites imagination. Students are welcomed by an engaging classroom activity in which they play a matching and identification game that helps define national symbols and the responsibilities of the President. On the tour, students will explore the Oval Office and Life in the White House exhibits and learn more about the symbols and duties explained in the classroom. This tour will last up to 60 minutes.
Holidays at the White House
Holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, St. Patrick’s Day, and Chanukah have long been celebrated at the White House each year. During the Clinton Administration, the White House also celebrated Ramadan for the first time. During this combined classroom program and tour, students will learn more about White House holiday traditions by viewing objects used during the celebrations – including hand-painted Easter eggs, a handcrafted menorah, and a crystal shamrock bowl. This program and tour will last up to 60 minutes.
