Treasures From Our Vaults


The museum collection of the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum is comprised of over 100,000 three-dimensional objects and works of art. Due to exhibit size limitations of the Museum, most of the objects will never be seen on display. Among the collection are gifts, including those presented to President Clinton from foreign heads of state, as well as gifts received by President Clinton from regular citizens from the United States and around the globe.

We will rotate our behind the scene objects in order to show the public what is being kept in storage.
