Mission & Vision


To ensure that the Diplomatic Reception Rooms remain rich in the decorative arts and master crafts of early American history, thereby forever providing a uniquely beautiful and appropriate setting for productive dialogue between our nation’s leaders and their international guests.


To employ the fine arts in support of the diplomatic arts by providing an elegant and historically evocative suite of rooms within which American and foreign leaders can establish friendships, exchange ideas, and tend to the aspirations and afflictions of a dynamic world.
