Not a substitute for visiting the actual White House Aug 25, 2017
White House Visitor Center is located near the White House. Not a substitute for visiting the White House itself. The White House requires advanced reservations, which is different for both domestic and international visitors. You will have to look around the internet for info on all that.

The White House is the official residence of the President of the United States. And the White House Visitor Center, serves as both a place to provide information to tourists (hence the visitor center part), and a small museum on the famous building on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The museum part has a bunch of displays, of items that have been used over the years in the history of the place. And descriptions on the history and what it is like living in the White House. And the different things that happen within the White House. Plus a film, which has past Presidents and First Ladies recall what it was like, living in it.

A small place, it can be seen in a short amount of time. But well worth it, as it does give a very good idea of what the White House is like, and how it is like living inside it. Is it a must-visit? I would say, not really, just for this attraction alone. But worth visiting, if you happen to be in the area.

And let me add this hereā€¦ seeing the White House building from the outside, is very much worth! So if you want to learn more, a visit to this place can add to it.

Admission is free!
