You can take a public tour of the Trump White House for the first time in March


The White House has been closed to public tours to let the Trump administration adjust. But that won't last much longer. 

First Lady Melania Trump said in a statement Tuesday the White House will reopen for free public tours March 7. 

She has been largely absent from the White House, living in New York with her son Barron. She plans to stay there until his school year is over.

Here's her full statement.

I wanna go! Where do I sign up?

Once the tours start, they will be Tuesday through Thursday between 7:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. And you have to plan them 21 days in advance, submitting them through a member of Congress. 

As of 2015, you're allowed to bring your phone and camera inside, as long as your lens is 3 inches in diameter or smaller. 

The wait for the tours to start was longer than usual, prompting a lot of questions.

Members of Congress petitioned the White House, wondering what was taking so long.

Trump said Betsy DeVos went through an 'unfair trial' before becoming education secretary
