Making the White House a Home

Third Floor White House a Home Saxaphone 1-1 opt

The White House was the Clintons’ only home during President Clinton’s two terms in office. They found ways to personalize it and make it theirs. Each of them had favorite spots in the White House and surrounded themselves with items that held special meaning for them. This area of the exhibit covers family celebrations, family memories, the First Pets, and two topics of great interest to President Clinton: sports and music. It includes family photos, gifts to the First Family bearing their likenesses, sports memorabilia, and saxophones given to President Clinton.

Highlighted Object from the Exhibit: Amati-Kraslice tenor saxophone with mother-of-pearl keys.  Gift to President Clinton from Vaclav Havel, President of the Czech Republic.
