We stopped here for an hour or so before heading to Grant's farm and I loved it!! My young children were not crazy about it but middle schoolers or older would appreciate the civil war history part of this place. It gives a really good taste of pre-civil war plantation life and a good look into the life of General... More

It is really pretty and very informative about out late President. I learned a lot more about Grant and what he did and tried to do for our country.

Probably took 45 minutes to go about 2 blocks to get here since it is on same road as Grants Farm- It is a bit closer on the right as you drive up the 2 lane road. Plan your visit mid day so most of the visitors to the other place are in and drinking their beer. Ranger said they... More

Don't go out of your way, but if you are in the area, this is a nice historical site. Be sure to walk the grounds to the outbuildings and house. Don't get herded down the road to park at the Anheuser Busch circus. Turn right into FREE parking for this site BEFORE you get to the Anheuser Busch area.

A little off the beaten path unless venturing to town for Grants Farm which we did not do but ran into the traffic for, but a great National Park visit to learn about the days of the past. It would be nice if there was a separate entrance (we sat in traffic way too long). The house was scantly decorated... More

Stopped by here after going to Grant's farm---should have stopped here first--much more suited for my older kids. Be sure to take the house tour. The movie is also very informative and done well. The museum also has good information and is air conditioned. Great place---worth the stop.

in our effort to visit all the homes of our presidents, we've seen some good ones and some not so good. this compound is better than most. OK, no furniture but the house has good bones and you get to look around on your own if you want. i spent at least a half hour just looking at how the... More

I have lived in St Louis for about 37 years now, and have made a few trips in the past to Grant's Farm. This attraction is located right next to Grant's Farm, as the property he owned included both of these attractions (and probably more). Admission here is free, and no "reservations" are required. It is a lot less crowded... More

I enjoyed my visit to this site. Parking was easy and the Rangers were friendly and knowledgeable. It's right next to Grant's Farm for which there was a long line. It took us a while to actually get to the site, but well worth the time. Traffic had cleared up by the time we left.

We were there on July 3rd, 2015. No crowds at the museum, just at the Zoo. Well done. Could have stayed for hours more. Well worth the visit. He was an amazing President who believed in equality and freedom for all. A turning point in American History. It was a beautiful place to visit.
