This small historic site is just across the road from Anheuser Busch's Grant's Farm amusement park. The staff was excellent and the displays about Mr. and Mrs. Grant's life were very informative. The site has a relatively low number of actual artifacts from Grant's life, certainly compared to the Tomb site in New York City. One problem: we arrived early... More

The site is quite a way out of the city - you can't get there without a car, but if you have the time and the means, it is definitely worth a visit. Although Grant only lived in the house for a short time early in his life, the well-considered exhibition and film offer a welcome insight into less well-known... More

this is ran by the US Park service, with a museum, and a film on the life of general grant. It is an interesting tour you walk up to the house, through the house, and back down to the carriage house that is a museum. The guides are knowledgeable there are interpretive signs. Both the guides and the signs are... More

This is a well displayed, easy to follow museum site. The information is good and we all felt we learned something about Grant.

Learned a lot, staff was very well informed and conversational. Beautiful grounds, original house, and Museum. We spent 2.5 hours. Definitely worth it.

This home was home to the 18th President of the United States from after the Civil War, until Ulysses Grant became President. While most of the furniture is not there anymore due to a storage home fire that destroyed most if not all the furniture. The Visitor Center and the Museum tie into the house and the lifestyles the family... More

The new movie in the theater is educational. We enjoyed the walk through and around the house. The stable/walk through museum is very nice.

We live locally and often visit the historical site for the tours around the grounds (call ahead for scheduling) and for the educational videos they play inside. There is also a medium sized museum area with some children's activities that my boys love (age seven and two). If you are heading to grants farm, you will drive right past the... More

It's rather disconcerting - and rather wonderful - to come across a site like this in the middle of a city, in effect. The house and surrounding buildings are of considerable interest even without the connection with Grant, and the ranger guided tour was excellent in illuminating the way a household like this worked as a unit, as well as...
