The White House Kitchen Garden, a new addition to the South Lawn, will be viewable from a distance along the tour route.

The tours are open to the public; however, a ticket is required for all attendees, including small children. The National Park Service will distribute free, timed tickets at the Ellipse Visitor Pavilion located at 15th and E Streets on each tour day beginning at 8:00 a.m. Tickets will be distributed -- one ticket per person -- on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tours of the Residence will be closed on the dates of the Garden Tours.
