  Clinton Presidential Library
by soundsgoodtome

Not knowing what exactly to expect, I visited the Clinton Library and was very impressed, especially given that I'm a Democrat but did not know too much about Pres. Clinton. In here you will find a thorough story of his life, from childhood to presidency. The first thing you do is watch a short introductory film narrated by the President himself, which is a great way to become oriented with him and the library.

The upstairs contains many personal items and momentos and tells the story of his and Hillary's lives. There is a replica of the Oval Office that looks exactly as it did when Clinton was in office. Perhaps one of my favorite things on this floor was the exhibition of gifts given to the President from foreign leaders and dignitaries, as well as ordinary Americans. I will not tell just what is showcased though.

The lower level has a replica of the Cabinet Room with an interactive table you can sit down at and see what its like to be one of the President's top advisors. The rest of the floor gives a detailed look at Pres. Clinton's two terms in office. Exhibits showcase landmark events that took place during his Presidency on a yearly basis. Other exhibits look at particular subjects of interest in detail, such as the economy, environment, national security, science and technology, foreign relations, and much more. There is also a few letters on display that were written to Pres. Clinton during his time in office by ordinary Americans and his responses to them.
