First lady Michelle Obama announced Thursday the White House was ending its ban on photos during tours.
Starting July 1, White House visitors are being encouraged to snap pictures of the historic residence and share them on social media with the hashtag #WhiteHouseTour.
Take a look at some of the first photos from a White House tour below:
Great news! For the first time in 50 years, photography is now allowed in the @whitehouse! I feel truly honored to have received an invite to the @whitehouse to on behalf of #DameTraveler. This is truly our most exciting and beautiful venture yet. A huge thank you to @jennabrayton for making this possible. Happy Snapping! 📷 #WhiteHouseTour
