From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Miniature White House is a detailed miniature replica of the White House created by miniaturists John and Jan Zweifel.[1][2][3]

Its construction began in 1962, on a 1 inch to 1 foot scale.[1] It was created in painstaking detail, and features miniature replications of almost all the rooms in the White House, including the East Wing, West Wing and the Oval Office. It has toured every U.S. state[1] as well as several foreign countries while on tour in the 1970s and early 1980s. While touring in Holland, the replica was attacked by a group of anti-American vandals, who significantly damaged most of the model, but all was eventually repaired. Portions of the replica can be seen at the Presidents Hall of Fame museum[1] in Clermont, Florida, while the replica itself is featured on tour (usually displayed in presidential libraries) from time to time.

A detailed, illustrated book by Gail Buckland, The White House in Miniature, was published in 1994 and features an extensive history of the replica, its creators and features a photographic tour of all the miniature rooms. A VHS/DVD tour of the replica has also been made available.

The replica's permanent location is at the Zweifel's Presidents Hall of Fame in Clermont, Florida.[1]
