On a tour led by Adam Hocker of the Albertine Bookstore, Insiders will enter the McKim, Mead and White-designed mansion to discover a marble rotunda featuring a statue by Michelangelo, visit the Albertine Bookstore on the first floor, and look into the Rococo Venetian room, and a ballroom. Insiders will also gain access to the usually-closed offices of the Cultural Counselor on the third floor. As a special treat, the staff will pull out a dress from Marilyn Monroe that was found within the embassy and let you know how it got there!
