Public tours of the White House will resume on March 7, first lady Melania Trump said Tuesday.

“I am excited to reopen the White House to the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come each year,” Mrs. Trump said in a statement. “The White House is a remarkable and historic site and we are excited to share its beauty and history.”

In announcing the reopening of the White House visitors’ office, Mrs. Trump said she is “committed to the restoration and preservation of our nation’s most recognizable landmark.”
