Harry S. Truman Presidential Library & Museum


 Exhibit Information

The White House in Miniature exhibit will be back at the Truman Presidential Museum & Library October 15, 2005 through July 9, 2006. The White House replica broke attendance records at the Library in 1996.

Since that time, it has traveled the country-drawing significant crowds at each venue. The Truman Presidential Museum & Library is thrilled to bring this exhibit back to the Kansas City area for an extended stay in 2005/2006.

Americans will now have the chance to get an insiders tour of "The Presidents House" without the hassles of traveling to the nation's capital. That is why John and Jan Zweifel have labored since 1962 to create The White House in Miniature, a breathtaking scale model of the White House that is 60 feet long and 20 feet wide. The replica took more than 35 years to research, design and construct.

Among the features are tiny, working televisions, hand-carved chairs and tables, crystal chandeliers, portraits and miniature carpets that reproduce the originals stitch by stitch- each nuance of the White House is painstakingly reproduced to capture the elegance of one of the world's most recognized residences.

James B. Nutter & Company is a proud sponsor of the White House in Miniature.
