Great little museum in Hope, it wasn't huge but it told his story well. Stop by if you're ever in town.

On the right side of the tracks but right next to an active rail line. Our former President lived with his grandparents while his single mother was away at nursing school, and then lived with a abusive, alcoholic step-father. In spite of these obstacles he perservered. His home undescores the premise fhat any american can be President.

Very nice folks running the operation. No more than 7 minutes off the interstate. The place clearly conveys, once again, that WJC was a president "of the people" -- not from some oil baron family. The shop is sufficient, but nothing compared to the one at Clinton's Library in Little Rock; but that's hardly the point. Wonderful use of an... More

Very friendly tour guide-Aaron. Just walked thru the house which was redone like it would have been when he was very young. Open and accessible as a walking tour. Stairs to bedrooms.

Know nothing about American politics. Stopped here by chance. A visitors centre gives info on Bill Clinton (more focused on his childhood) and then a tour of his grandparents house. The people running the visitor centre are really nice and helpful.

The site includes a big, brick "visitors center" with a gift shop and some pictures/info. The tour guide/ranger will take you to the house owned by Clinton's grandparents, where he lived for the first few years of his life. It's restored with reproductions of furniture from the time, but it's still pretty cool. Our tour guide was really funny and... More

If you're into presidential birthplaces or just random modern history, feel free to swing by. Oh and it's free, which is nice since so many historical sites charge to visit.

As of today they show a picture of a house saying it is the birthplace of William Jefferson Clinton. That is not the house you will see. Not sure if this house exists. We did see the house but missed it and had to be redirected to it. There is a large sign on the highway pointing to it but... More

Although none of the furniture is authentic, it is period and gives the visitor a sense of what it might have looked like. Very interesting facts shared by the staff. A very interesting experience. Photos allowed.
