Not much to expect from the outside, but the exhibits indoors are "Wow!"

Pulling up, the somewhat dilapidated building exterior (recently painted) is a bit to question yourself if this is something to fo through with, but... Once inside, there are... read more

Like many visitors, Ben and Mrs Too took in this attraction immediately after riding to the top of the Citrus Tower. Like the latter attraction, the external appearance of the Presidents’ Hall of Fame promises little to enjoy, BUT once inside, the wonders never cease. Wax figures, miniature tableaux, posters, a doll house sized miniature White House with no exterior... More

Pulling up, the somewhat dilapidated building exterior (recently painted) is a bit to question yourself if this is something to fo through with, but... Once inside, there are so many exhibits, displays and artifacts from actual US Presidents and their Administrations, it's practically begging one to continue. The biggest eye-opener was the huge, 20 ton White House replica, with each... More

$15 entry fee which gives a year long pass. Friendly, knowledgable staff that give a brief history and then leave you to watch a 40 minute film about "turning around the White House" for the new president. Fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes getting one president out and another in during the few hours of inauguration. The... More

A walkable 300 yards from the Citrus Tower parking lot is this GEM of a museum for the history lovers and older children. If you have ever wondered about the history and interior of our Presidential Mansion you will ind it. Beautifully done scale models of the White House inside and out and detailed dioramas of the oval office through... More

My husband and I recently visited the Mini White House Museum. Seeing various exhibits was similar to visiting the museums in DC. The miniature White House was interesting--giving a good perspective of the WH, Unfortunately, the negative out weighs the good in our visit. Outside there were overflowing trash cans, debris and generally unkempt grounds. Inside the space was VERY... More

We were kind of disappointed; first no where in their flyer states you are required to pay $15 to enter the exhibit; second the place is too small and thirdly, you barely have room to move through the Gift Shop.

If you are interested in the history of our presidents, this is a cool place to take kids. This is a little crowded and junkie but interesting to take the kids to. We enjoyed our one trip but there is not much to encourage us to return multiple times.

We visited the Presidents Hall of Fame in Clermont, FL (on Highway 27 near the Florida Citrus Tower). Outside is a replica of Mount Rushmore (great spot for family photos with the presidents). Right inside is a gift shop (free of charge). Adult admission is $ 15 to go into the museum (a 1 year pass will be given upon... More

Orlando is a city dominated by big and polished attractions. There are very few of these classic roadside attractions remaining in the area and the Presidents Hall of Fame is the best of them. It sits right next to another historical Florida attraction, the Citrus Tower, which once and still is a tall observation tower. The PHOF is a small... More

We were really surprised at what you can learn at what has to be done for a smooth transfer of power after the election. Plus the the things you learn about the living conditions in the east and west wing of the White House. Even throw it is in miniature it is worthwhile.
