Detoured to Hope specifiaclly to visit Clinton's boyhood home. Well worth it, the NPS have done a good job in detailing his early lie. No big Clinton fan but enjoyed my time there.

This was not in my travel plans, but I'm glad we did it. One main reason was that it's a National Park and we love visiting National Parks. It was a very interesting visit. I did not know anything about President Clinton. It was neat, cute, and informative.

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
