Experience a deep dive into the history of the Situation Room, also known as the “Sit Room”, during this 30-minute seated presentation. Afterward, explore the Situation Room as it was actually used by President George W. Bush.

The Sit Room was extensively renovated and upgraded in 2006 with more advanced technology. The wood-paneled walls dating to President Richard M. Nixon’s Administration as well as the conference table and chairs used during President Bush’s Administration were preserved during the 2006 renovations and have been installed here at the George W. Bush Presidential Museum.

The Situation Room is the nerve center of information for the President of the United States. Established in 1961, the Sit Room in the White House is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week to monitor national and world intelligence information. Tours are available weekly at the times listed below:
