President’s Day calls for presidential tour

Posted on February 19, 2018

As America celebrates and honors those who have held our nation’s highest office, now is the perfect time to visit the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Center highlighting the life and career of our 42nd president, and receive free admission on this special day.

Among the permanent exhibits, you will see President Clinton’s limousine, papers and documents from his presidency, presents gifted the First Family, the president’s saxophone collection, and exact replicas of the Cabinet Room and the Oval Office.

Two of the Center's temporary exhibits will be winding down Feb. 19. Mandela: The Journey to Ubuntu maps the journey of African political leader Nelson Mandela, and the challenges and triumphs he would face throughout his life. Art of Africa: One Continent, Limitless Vision is an extraordinary display of African art told through colors, shapes and textures. From clothing, jewelry, paintings, and more, these pieces have been pulled from the Clinton Presidential Center’s archives to coincide with the Mandela exhibit.

Also through March 4 is The Great Expedition: Exploring the Louisiana Purchase and Its Impact on Arkansas. View the original American treaty between the United States and France. See explorer William Dunbar’s journal, eyeglasses and compass. Learn how this important expedition played an vital role in forming today’s Arkansas.

Round out your visit to the Clinton Presidential Center by lunching at the newly renovated 42 bar and table. The Arkansas Traveler Burger is a fan favorite.
