Have you ever wished you could be President of the United States? Well if you have, The American Presidential Experience (www.presidentialexperience.com) is a great place to visit. It's a traveling exhibit that will visit both Denver and Minneapolis for the DNC and RNC meetings. Currently, it's parked in front of Invesco Field where Barack Obama will accept the Democratic nomination on Thursday. Once inside the large tent, you can visit replicas of Air Force One and the Oval Office. You can even sit behind the President's desk.

 

There's also a small White House model that has openings to put your hand in and guess what different things behind it are. Some examples are a plastic skull, a baseball glove and an alligator. Each of these items has a Presidential story associated with it. Some other highlights include: giant panels about every single President (including their nicknames), a Presidential limousine, some of the Presidents' shoes, many interesting chairs, and Lincoln Logs for younger children.

 

Afterwards, you can also visit a traveling exhibit about Abraham Lincoln. Before becoming President, he was a farmer, a shopkeeper and a lawyer. If you want to become President one day, you should definitely visit! And, even if you don't, it's an amazing place!
