The White House complex consists of the Executive Residence, the West Wing, the East Wing, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and Blair House, a guest residence. The Executive Residence is made up of six stories, which include the Ground Floor, State Floor, Second Floor and Third Floor, as well as a two-story basement. The interior is composed of 132 rooms, with 35 bathrooms, and includes items – artwork, furniture, and memorabilia – which are both historical and of personal significance to the presidents.
The White House is listed as a National Heritage Site owned by the National Park Service and part of the President's Park. In 2007, it was ranked second on the American Institute of Architects list of "America's Favorite Architecture", and is open to visitors for free tours, typically offered from Tuesday-Saturday. Thus, the White House is a major travelers destination, popular amongst tourists and history appreciators alike.
