Make your way to the Renwick Gallery of Art, where this walking tour begins across from the North Front of the White House. Meet a costumed actor who will walk with you throughout the tour, sharing stories from the Theodore Roosevelt family.
Find out how President Theodore Roosevelt and his wife, Edith, raised six children while living in the White House: you’ll hear stories about Alice, Ted, Kermit, Ethel, Archie, and Quentin. Listen to mischievous tales about childhood antics and spitballs. Learn about the wild array of animals that the Roosevelts kept and loved, and how the President made time to play with his kids.
Imagine life in the capital city through the eyes of the ‘White House Gang,’ a group of friends who made the White House attic their childhood headquarters. This family-friendly tour offers a unique, kid-focused perspective on the 26th American President, and on United States history.
