Broadway at the Beach American Presidential Experience

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A replication of the Air Force One will arrive at Broadway at the Beach as preparations continue for the largest traveling exhibit of presidential memorabilia to come to Myrtle Beach.

A full-sized Boeing aircraft fuselage will make its way to Broadway at the Beach on Tuesday around 1:30 p.m.  The fuselage is replicated as Air Force One that was used for nearly three decades, from President John F. Kennedy through President Ronald Reagan.

The American Presidential Experience is the largest traveling exhibit of presidential memorabilia in the world.  The non-partisan exhibit invites everyone to learn more about democracy in action through educational exhibits celebrating three centuries of presidential history. 

The exhibit will include a wide variety of items and activities, including life-size replicas of Air Force One, the Oval Office, a collection of first lady gowns, presidential chairs, presidential panels, talking presidential heads, interactive voting stations and much more.

"The exhibit will provide our visitors with a unique opportunity to get an up-close and personal look at the history of the presidency," general manager of Broadway at the Beach Sherry Leonard, said.

"The American Presidential Experience is truly an experience where you can touch history," Jim Warlick, curator of the event said.  "Come aboard Air Force One and experience the grandeur of flying on the world's most powerful flying office. Sit in the Oval Office and put your hands on the desk given to President Hayes by Queen Victoria. Have your children reach through the windows of the White House."

The Air Force One will be on display at Broadway at the Beach with the rest of the American Presidential Experience exhibits from June 12 through September 12. It will be open to the public in the Broadway Commons Area of Broadway at the Beach from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. daily.
