Presidential Museums

The presidential library system was inaugurated in 1939, when President Franklin Roosevelt donated his personal and presidential papers to the federal government.

Today the system encompasses 10 presidential libraries as well as the Nixon Project in College Park, MD.

Take a walk through American history at these presidential libraries and museums:

  • Mount Vernon
    George Washington's home in Virginia is a tribute to our first president and the early days of the country's history. The site features photos of the rooms and objects, and the collection contains 15,000 domestic objects from the Washington household.

  • The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum
    This Illinois museum celebrates the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln with photos and text about its main exhibit.




  • Franklin D. Roosevelt Museum
    A wealth of information on the 32nd president is available at this first presidential library. Great exhibits and 10,000 digitized documents.

  • John F. Kennedy Library
    A slide show tour of the museum accompanies a biography, photos and current library projects. Read the text and listen to dozens of speeches by JFK, RFK and Edward Kennedy.

  • Lyndon B. Johnson Library and Museum
    Lots of photos chronicle LBJ's life from childhood to the presidency.
