Archived White House Websites

First Archived White House Website“The first White House Web Site was developed in 1994, during the Clinton Administration. The then White House took snap shots of each version. These versions are historical materials, frozen in time, which means that they are no longer updated and links to other sites will not work. Some images were not provided to the National Archives and Records Administration and may appear as broken images or links.”

See What Our Visitors are Saying

“Fabulous Experience!”

This impressive facility will keep you busy for hours (regardless of your political leanings), and does not attempt to gloss over any of the more embarrassing moments of his Presidency any more than glorifying his many accomplishments.

“Great chapter in history”

Wonderfully curated and very interesting the multimedia presentations allow visitors to go as deep as they want. I loved seeing the President’s daily calendar as well as all the history. Very easy to navigate.

“Impressive & memorable”

The building itself is very impressive, LEED certified, and an appropriate setting for artifacts from one of the more momentous eras in our history… For presidential documentarians and history fanatics, the WJC Library is a must.

“This museum is a must see!”

Regardless of your politics you will enjoy this museum. We visit a lot of museums every year as we travel and I can say that this is one of the best! We have been to several presidential museums and this one is so very detailed and very different.
