The White House in Miniature

Oct 10, 2003

The White House in Miniature offers visitors an "insider's look" at the President's House

Central Texans will have the chance to get an inside tour of "The President's House" without the hassles of traveling to the nation's capital. The White House in Miniature exhibit will be on display at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum from November 11, 2003 through February 16, 2004.

Created on a scale of one inch to one foot, The White House in Miniature is a remarkable creation with captivating detail. Featuring exact representations, this miniature mansion is a large, 60 feet long by 20 feet wide replica that took John and Jan Zweifel and a dedicated corps of volunteers more than 35 years to research, design, and construct.

From the tiny working telephones, hand-carved chairs and tables, crystal chandeliers, portraits exactly like those that grace the White House's walls 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. The LBJ Library and Museum, located at 2313 Red River Street, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Christmas. Admission is free.

Time Warner Cable is a proud sponsor of The White House in Miniature with additional support provided by Southwest Airlines.
