“Facade nice but not great displays”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

The outside of the building is nice and you'll see it if you visit the White House, however inside there's really not much to see. I would skip it if I were just visiting the city.

“Great artifacts from the White House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

My daughter found this exhibition. There were a lot of pieces used in the White House--some in original condition so re-done. All of the pieces had good information blurbs to tell you how they were used and so with photos showing how it was used and positioned in the White House with some anecdotes. Not a large display--something that can be toured in about one half hour. Fascinating!!

“Small gallery worth the time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

Great smaller exhibits right near the white house-- worth stopping in if you're walking around jackson square, particularly in the summer when you might need some air-conditioning and art!
