The White House Visitors Office plans to resume public tours on March 7, 2017, First Lady Melania Trump announced Tuesday.

“I am excited to reopen the White House to the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come each year,” the first lady said in a statement from the White House. “The White House is a remarkable and historic site and we are excited to share its beauty and history. I am committed to the restoration and preservation of our Nation's most recognizable landmark.”
