The American Presidential Experience is coming to Charlotte August 31 through September 8 for the Democratic National Convention and we need volunteers to help with this non-partisan exhibit! A 30,000 square foot, air conditioned tent will house the largest collection of presidential exhibits ever to travel in America, including the only replica of Ronald Reagan’s Air Force One, a full size Oval Office, interactive educational exhibits, over a dozen First Ladies gowns highlighting fashions from Martha Washington to Jackie Kennedy along with book signings on the Presidential Stage from the top twenty historical and presidential scholars.
The exhibit will be set up in a temporary tent at 407 West Third Street, at the corner of South Mint and Third Streets in Uptown Charlotte.
