Weekend at the Museum: First Ladies at the Smithsonian


With all the political excitement that the month of November brings, I thought this would be a good time to share this exhibit with you.  The live exhibition at the Smithsonian is one of the museum’s most visited.  It features 24 dresses worn by First Ladies including the one worn by Michelle Obama.

You can also view the collection online at the Smithsonian’s website.  According to the site, the main gallery displays 14 dresses worn by Grace Coolidge, Jackie Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Helen Taft while the new “A First Lady’s Debut” gallery includes 11 gowns worn by first ladies from Mamie Eisenhower to Michelle Obama.
