I got to visit when a friend who worked there took us for a tour. From the Indian Treaty Room to the White House Bowling Alley, the Old Executive Office Building is full of surprises. Keep your eyes open and you'll see a few famous faces hustling off to the West Wing.

I've actually not been inside. So I can't attest to the awesomeness of that; however, for 5 years, I worked right around the corner and found myself in awe anytime I was able to sneak a peek. The building is absolutely stunning. It's also supposedly haunted (as I learned on a ghost tour of dc - 2nd date with my now husband). I imagine, with an exterior as remarkable as this, the interior of the building would be pretty amazing, too.

This building is packed with interesting architectural details inside and outside. I worked in the building for three years and was constantly finding new things to see. The building has a lot of great history, too.

The Old Executive Office Buildings charm is its architecture. It is very ornate both inside and out. It would be worth going on the tour to learn its history and how it has been used and how it's being used now.
