Admission to the Clinton House Museum is free through the end of May, officials announced today.
While fees are waived, the museum will accept donations from visitors, businesses and other donors interested in supporting the museum’s mission to raise awareness of the home’s place in history.
The house, located at 930 W Clinton Dr. in Fayetteville, is the first home of U.S. President Bill Clinton and former U.S. Secretary of State and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. It is the site where they were married, and where they lived when they were law professors at the University of Arkansas.
“The Clintons’ story is unique in the history of our nation, and globally, and by waiving admission we are able to more broadly share their legacies and this important part of Fayetteville’s rich history,” said Angie Albright, the museum’s director. “There will always be another chapter for Bill and Hillary, but it’s our job to preserve their past here in Fayetteville, and we hope we can count on visitors and this community to help us do that through their donations.”
The small Tudor Revival style home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and remains in the same condition as it was when the Clintons lived there. A replica of Hillary Clinton’s wedding dress, as well as memorabilia from both Clintons’ political careers, can be seen throughout the home.
A First Ladies’ Garden was created behind the home after the Clintons left the White House. The garden includes the favorite plantings of every First Lady of the United States, from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama.
The museum and gift shop are open every day, with the exception of Wednesdays. For more information, visit ClintonHouseMuseum.org.
