Description And Comments

The Hall of Presidents combines a widescreen theater presentation of key highlights and milestones in the political history of the United States with a short stage show featuring life-size animatronic replicas of every US president. The figures’ physical resemblances and costumes are masterful.

In addition to Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, several other presidents have small speaking roles in the show, either in the film or onstage. Regardless of who speaks, the inspirational, patriotic tone is a constant. For that reason, foreign visitors rate the show lower than Americans do.

We’ve had a high opinion of Hall of Presidents throughout its scripts. That said, we receive a lot of mail from readers who get more than entertainment from it. A woman in St. Louis writes:

We always go when my husband gets cranky, so he can take a nice nap.

A young mother in Marion, Ohio, adds:

The Hall of Presidents is a great place to breast-feed.

Touring Tips

The Hall’s latest addition is President Joseph R. Biden, who recites the oath of office. Over the last decade or so, it’s become commonplace for some members of the audience to cheer or jeer, according to their political affiliation, as the current president and his contemporaries are named. These partisan displays are divisive and not in keeping with the show’s positive message, but they aren’t likely to go away—so skip The Hall of Presidents if you’d rather not be reminded of politics on vacation.
