The Little Rock Office of the Clinton Foundation today confirmed plans to renovate the Presidential Library lobby. The renovated lobby will house the Clinton Museum Store, which is now located at 610 President Clinton Avenue in downtown Little Rock. The Foundation owns the building at 610 President Clinton Avenue and is exploring options to lease portions of the building or to sell it. The Center will remain open and no school or tour groups will be affected during construction.
Currently, the Museum Store staff operates a small kiosk in the lobby. The new lobby store will combine the operations of both the Museum Store and the kiosk. The Museum Store will close by the end of the year; lobby renovations are scheduled to be completed in March 2016; the kiosk will continue to operate throughout the renovations.
“We are always looking for ways to enhance our visitor experience, and modernizing the lobby - which was built 11 years ago - will provide a number of opportunities to improve customer service,” said Stephanie S. Streett, executive director of the Clinton Foundation. “The renovation will allow for the consolidation of the Museum Store and the Kiosk, which will create a one–stop–shopping opportunity. Additionally, the new lobby design will include a new admissions desk area that will streamline the admission process."
Beginning January 2, 2016, the Center will increase ticket prices for the first time in its 11-year history, with an adult ticket price of $10. Discounted ticket prices for veterans, seniors, college students, and youth will also increase by $3. Active military and school groups will continue to receive free admission. Since its opening, more than 282,600 students have toured the Center free-of-charge. The Center will also continue to offer four free-admission days annually.
