Museum Collection

The President James K. Polk Home & Museum houses one of the most important presidential collections in the nation. The heart of the collection descended directly through the Polk family and includes many objects owned and used by James and Sarah Polk personally, like White House china, campaign materials, and gowns of the First Lady.

The full collection catalog will be online and searchable soon. Until then, contact our Curator with any questions.

The Polk Home & Museum will temporarily close starting August 17 for HVAC upgrades. We anticipate the closure to last three weeks but will update as work progresses.
