Inaugural Ball Tours

Docent-led tours of the Pension Building's presidential past

 

In
In 1885, Grover Cleveland began the tradition of hosting presidential activities in the Great Hall; a tradition that lives on in present day.
Harper's Weekly, p. 209, 16 March 1889

There's no debate, it's a political party! Come learn about the history of inaugural balls held at the Pension Building, the Museum's historic home. Your docent will share the history and the pagentry of inaugural balls, making stops throughout the building and using a variety of visuals to enhance the experience. Inaugural ball tours are offered regularly every four years, but are available to be booked as a custom tour.
