The White House has added a new room to the visitor route on February 10, and first lady Michelle Obama greeted tourists as they arrived.
The Old Family Dining Room has been opened to the public for the first time, the White House has announced.
The room was recently refurbished and will be a showcase for 20th century art and design.
The Old Family Dining Room is a smaller dining room situated next to the State Dining Room on the first floor.

The room was created by President John Quincy Adams in 1825 as a place for the first family to eat meals.
Visitors on a tour of the White House on Tuesday, February 10, were left stunned by a surprise appearance from Michelle Obama and former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager.
Former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager was present to interview Michelle Obama for the Today show.
At least once a year, Michelle Obama surprises visitors as they take the White House tour.

Former President George W. Bush accepted his daughter Jenna Bush Hager’s ice bucket challenge on August 20.
In a hilarious twist, former First Lady Laura Bush surprised him with the face full of cold water after the former president offered just to write a check.
Jenna Bush Hager nominated her dad for the viral challenge, which has helped raise over $22 million for ALS Association, when NBC News’ Craig Melvin doused her last week.
George W. Bush wrote on Facebook: “Thanks to Jenna Bush Hager, Rory McIlroy, Woody Johnson, and Coach Jim Harbaugh for the #IceBucketChallenge – and to Laura W. Bush for the check. Next up: President Bill Clinton. Help #StrikeOutALS at www.alsa.org.“
The former president starts his video by trying to forgo the ice altogether.

“I do not think it’s presidential for me to be splashed with ice water,” George W. Bush said.
“So, I’m simply going to write you a check.”
Then Laura Bush sneaks up behind her husband and splashes him with the required bucket of ice water.
“Now it’s my privilege to challenge my friend Bill Clinton,” George W. Bush tells the camera after he gets a moment to dry himself off.
“Yesterday was Bill’s birthday. And my gift to Bill is a bucket of cold water,” President George W. Bush said.
