We had the best ranger guide -- so nice and friendly. My kids did the junior ranger program and were really excited to get their badges.

We're so glad we made time to visit this site. It was interesting, informative and historical all wrapped up into one. There is the museum and home itself along with many more buildings set around the site. We truly enjoyed all it had to offer!

I am always looking for free or budget friendly locations. This was a fantastic place to take my young boys. They were able to learn about the Civil War era, as well as Grant and his background. My 9 year old really has taken a liking to learning historical things, so he was very happy here.

This is right next to Grant Farms and the two shouldn't be confused- like I did ; ) This is a nice US Park Service run museum covering much of Grant's life in an approachable way. We skipped the house tour since apparently many of the original furnishings were destroyed in a fire at some point. The museum itself was... More

If you are going to pay to park at Grant's Farm, you might as well walk down to the Grant Historical Site. It is a good place to see and get a better understanding of Grant's interesting life. The grounds have been upgraded and is very family friendly.

This is a quaint little part of the National Park Service. I learned a lot about Grant that I didn't know before. The movie and the artifacts tell a story often unheard of by many. I recommend this place to all those who love history.

This was a short visit as we had decided kind of spur of the moment to check this out. I am glad we stopped. Well done museum, that was easy to get to and very interesting. We say the Grant Home that was what he called home, though it was the home his wife grew up in and then he... More

We really enjoyed most of the aspects of the this Historic sight othe than there was nothing to see inside the house. Their items had been burned in a fire many years prior which is understandable but it would be nice to have some items that were similar or of that era. However the museum was interactive and nice to... More
