The Diplomatic Reception Rooms are among the most beautiful rooms in the world. For fifty years, the art of diplomacy has thrived in the Diplomatic Reception Rooms against a stunning backdrop of American art and architecture from the time of our country’s founding and its formative years. The suite contains a museum-caliber collection of American fine and decorative art from the period of 1750-1825. Guided, fine arts tours of the collection are appropriate for groups of students 12 and older and are available by request.
