The Senate Staff Office exhibit features the exemplary work of Senator Kennedy’s staff, and what is involved in working in a United States Senator’s office. Through a mixture of hands-on activities, video features, and office artifacts, visitors have the opportunity to hear firsthand stories from Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s staff and take on the role of those assigned with completing daily Senate office responsibilities.

The interactive exhibit highlights some of the key roles in the Washington, D.C. office and the home state office, including the jobs of scheduler, chief of staff, legislative assistant, and press secretary.
