Stamptuary Hall: Dwight D. Eisenhower

Dwight D. Eisenhower’s statue was the first to replace another state statue in the National Statuary Hall Collection. Replacements were first allowed in 2000, and Eisenhower’s statue was given to the collection by Kansas in 2003, replacing a statue of former Kansas governor G.W. Glick. Eisenhower’s statue stands in the Rotunda today.

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
