The White House....in miniature

Over the Memorial Day weekend, I went with a few members of my miniature guild to Grand Rapids, Michigan to see the White House in miniature.
It was massive at 60 feet long including the east and west wings.

The gardens were even represented.


I believe the room in this photo is the State Dining Room. The tables were all set and the candleabra lit.



The Oval Office
The rooms were impressive with lit fireplaces, computers and televisions that appeared to be "on", and photographs of past presidents.
The display is a traveling display and now it moves on to a new location.
If you get a chance, it is worth seeing.
There is also a book available.

When the White House in miniature was exhibited in Tucson years ago, I was lucky enough to be one of the people that stood guard over in inside the ropes. It was amazing! We really had nothing to do other than look at it. The ropes kept the people back. It was so much fun to be able to poke my nose in the rooms to look! It is wonderful and amazing!
