We're taking a White House tour -- yay! How can I get my kids excited (and informed) about it?

My kids are between the ages of 5 and 11. I'd like to think they're politically literate from listening to their parents talk about politics, but I spent most of our session last year taking a Capitol tour explaining (and repeating) that the Capitol is where Congress does its stuff, not where the President lives and works.
My last question
about how to keep my kids interested on a trip was insanely helpful, BTW. Thanks, Hive Mind!
