First Lady Michelle Obama officially announced on her Instagram this Wednesday that the White House will officially allow photos and social media posts on tours. The policy change will allow phones and compact still cameras with a lens less than three inches. Selfie sticks still aren't allowed, though, and neither are video cameras, tablets, and tripods. To see what pictures White House guests have already started taking, check out the photo gallery below.
For the first time in 40 years, you can now take photos while touring the White House! It was such an honor to be a part of such a fun day in history!
