White House Visitor Center closing for 15-month rehab

The White House Visitor Center will close Sunday for a 15-month rehabilitation, the National Park Service announced Tuesday.

Regional Director Stephen E. Whitesell said in a statement that the center, located in Baldrige Hall of the Herbert Hoover Building, at 1450 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, will close at 4 p.m.

A temporary visitor facility will open on July 28 at the Ellipse Visitor Pavilion near the corner of 15th and E streets NW, just southeast of the White House, and will remain open until the project is completed.

The park service said the improvements to the visitor center will include interactive exhibits, a model of the White House, a museum, a better bookstore area and better visitor information facilities.
