Headed to the White House

Headed to the White House
September 1, 2011 to July 29, 2012

Voting for our elected leaders and representatives is one of our fundamental rights as Americans, and none is more important than electing a president. Every four years presidential elections engage the entire country and provide citizens and candidates a chance to discuss, debate and decide the country's direction and future.

Campaign season is in full swing at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum with "Headed to the White House," an interactive exhibit designed for all ages, capturing the excitement and pageantry of the presidential election process from the first primaries through the presidential inauguration. Multimedia experiences, hands-on activities and role-playing opportunities immerse visitors in all the action of a campaign.

In this exhibit, you'll step into the roles of the many different people involved in presidential elections. You can:

  • See what it's like to be a presidential candidate
  • Try your hand at running a campaign
  • Create your own election news story
  • Learn how to get involved — even if you're too young to vote

"Headed to the White House" is an engaging celebration of democracy and the power of "We, the People."

This National Constitution Center exhibit is made possible through the generosity of The Annenberg Foundation, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

"Headed to the White House" is on display at the Bush Library and Museum from Sept. 1, 2011 through July 29, 2012.
