Since opening its doors more than 40 years ago, the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum has sated the brains and curiosities of nearly three million visitors with its vast presentation of presidential vestiges and rotating exhibits. History hounds can analyze artifacts in the Herbert Hoover permanent galleries, which use a multitude of manuscripts, photographs, and oral histories to retell Hoover's story as the all-seeing eye of the executive branch.
In addition to the permanent collection, the museum currently houses The Oxford Project, a photographic exhibit chronicling the evolution and transformation of a small Iowa town over the course of 20 years. Taken in 1984 and again in 2004, Peter Feldstein's photographs, along with the words of writer Stephan Bloom, reveal the physical, emotional, and cultural transformations of his subjects. School House to the White House, running April 23–October 30, showcases the schooling of America's presidents, from their early years spent nominating stuffed animals to environmental committees to their high-school years.
