I run the White House Visitors’ Office, and I wanted to share a big change the President and First Lady just made to the White House visitors photo policy:
The longstanding ban on photography in the White House — in place for more than 40 years — is being lifted. Watch the First Lady share why they did this:
So starting today, guests at the White House are now welcome to take photos throughout the White House tour route and keep those memories for a lifetime.
We’re posting our favorites all day right here.
Want to visit the White House or take a virtual tour? Get the details about how you can sign up here.
We’re so excited — and we can’t wait for you to come visit!
Ellie Schafer is Director of the White House Visitors Office.
