We enjoyed our visit and learned more about President Eisenhower's leadership of our country through WWII (as the top General leading us through D-Day and the defeat of Hitler), and in the Post-War Era following Harry S. Truman. The boyhood home is still in it's original location and the tour was informative. The Museum is huge, larger than we had... More

If you enjoy history or learning about the Presidents, this is a place you must visit. We loved learning about President Eisenhower, WWII, and seeing many of Mamie's outfits. President Eisenhower's boyhood home is also on the property and it's a good reminder that in America anyone can become somebody. Also, the price of admission was very reasonable.

A friend recommended the Eisenhower Museum, so I made a detour to the museum, and it was well worth the trip. As a fan of US history, I was not disappointed. The tour of the Eisenhower childhood home was a look into early 20th century plains life. The museum's current WWII timeline exhibit was outstanding. The Eisenhower WWII and presidential... More

The Eisenhower Library is a Presidential Library, but the Museum is about so much more. Dwight D. Eisenhower was so much more than the President the Museum was actually started before he was President, to celebrate the hometown hero who helped win the war! The exhibits seem quaint compared to many of the other Presidential Library's but the story in... More

Spent a week here doing research in the Library, but visited the lovely and peaceful Place of Meditation (where DDE and Mamie are buried), as well as the Museum and gift shop. The Museum exhibitions are very well done, with a wealth of interesting objects to see. The current WWII exhibition brings a variety of perspectives to viewers. Children over... More

If you like politics, history, or are a World War II buff, don't miss this. The museum is fascinating. Young children would most likely find this boring.

It gives an unvarnished glimpse of the past. It makes one yearn for bygone days. Ike was a war hero and Mamie was a great back up to her husband. The items displayed were fascinating. I had no feeling of an agenda being pushed. The building is beautiful, the grounds lovely and shady. It's definitely worth the time to visit... More

I had no idea about the size of this museum before we made our unplanned visit. There's not a whole lot to "do" here, so my small kids didn't really find much of interest. But if you've got time to do all the reading (and there's lots) and walk through the place (it's quite large), I'm sure an interested adult... More

I will admit I'm an Ike fan and this complex lived up to my expectations. The museum is very large and contains a lot of exhibit space about World War 2 and Eisenhower's role in it, as well as his life from his childhood in Abilene to the White House. My wife did observe that the exhibits are somewhat "old-fashioned"... More
