The White House

Be the President, slip into the role of a secret service agent, or learn some cool facts about the Presidents. You can even sit at the Resolute Desk! ⇩⇩

The sky is truly the limit at The Children's Museum, where every child can dream big and imagine themselves in the highest office in the land. Regardless of who you are or where you come from, the possibility of becoming president one day is within your reach. This interactive, hands-on exhibit recreates the iconic Oval Office, inviting children to step into the roles of President, Secret Service agent, or congressperson.

As they learn fascinating facts about past presidents, they can even make a call on the replica "Red Phone" from Jimmy Carter's era. With a suite jacket and the Resolute Desk at their disposal, children of all ages can immerse themselves in the experience and envision themselves in positions of significant importance. What decisions would you make if you were president? This exhibit not only educates but also inspires, encouraging young minds to think about leadership and their potential to shape the future.
