Historic Diplomacy
In-Person Educational Program
30 Minutes

Over the course of American history, the president has been responsible for developing and maintaining our nation’s diplomatic ties to other countries. One way presidents do that is by inviting foreign leaders to the White House for state visits. The tour will explore the interactions between President Clinton and leaders from foreign countries visiting the White House. Students will then consider the historic and current diplomatic relationships between the United States and foreign nations represented in the exhibition.

This tour is for the "Be Our Guest" exhibition, which explores some of the memorable diplomatic visits hosted by President Bill Clinton and then-First Lady Hillary Clinton.
