  • A Nation Under Attack - Remember the events of September 11, 2001, and honor the lives lost. Artifacts, including steel from the World Trade Center that visitors may touch, the bullhorn President Bush used to address the crowd at Ground Zero, and letters he received in the days following the attacks, make up a solemn and moving memorial to a pivotal moment in our Nation's history.
  • Life in the White House - Peek behind the closed doors of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to see what life is like inside the White House. Learn more about the First Pets, witness the pomp and circumstance that comes with a state dinner, and enjoy a film in the White House Theater about Camp David, the Bush Ranch in Texas, and the President and First Lady's sense of humor.
  • Oval Office - The Oval Office exhibit is an exact replica, in scale and design, as the one in the White House during the Bush Administration. Visitors are able to get an up-close look at the paintings, sculptures, and bookcases, and may even sit behind the reproduction of the Resolute Desk for a photograph.
  • Critical Decisions - Play the role of President and dive into the decision-making process in our interactive Decision Points Theater. Hear from presidential advisers and voice how you would act as President when faced with major crises such as Hurricane Katrina or the troop surge in Iraq.
  • Freedom Hall - Enjoy this one-of-a-kind, massive 20-foot-tall, 360-degree LED screen showing high-definition multimedia clips blending art, history, and entertainment.
