Event description

Description

What kind of bling do you get for the POTUS who has everything?

The gifts received from foreign heads of state are part of the record of American diplomacy. Gifts from American and foreign citizens often expressed either personal warmth or their feelings for the president. Many of these gifts are examples of the finest decorative arts and craftsmanship available around the world. Gifts can also be more practical such as the Burberry coat given to President Lyndon B. Johnson from the U. K. Prime Minister. Others are more unique like the wooden chair shaped like a saxophone given to President Clinton.

Come explore for yourself, from stately pearl-adorned evening gowns to ostentatious furniture, solid gold commemorative coins to questionable keepsakes, and everything in between.

Light refreshments and beverages will be provided at this open house-style event.
