The site tells tales about the Civil War, about US Grant, about 19th Century life, about slavery, and about one of the great romances of American history: US Grant and Julia Dent. There is a house tour, there are outbuildings to explore, a barn filled with history exhibits, and a movie. And it is free.

Well worth a visit. Very educational, with a well-done introductory video. Good for the family. Do visit the museum in the visitor center after touring the grounds. The Budweiser Clydesdales are nearby.

We knew about Grant's Farm, owned and operated by the Anheuser Busch Co., but didn't know this historic site was across the street until we drove up to it. It is a very modern and well maintained park. All of the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. If you enjoy American history, you'll love this park.

It is nice to see because it is a national park. You don't need more than 2 hours for it. Our guide did a nice job. The kids can get a junior ranger badge.

We arrived to late to get the personal tour, but the Ranger at the desk was very informative and friendly. The movie was also very nice and the self guided tour nice as well. We should have come a little earlier to do the tour, however, it was still worth the visit. Highly recommend this little piece of history.

You learn about all the political, social and economic factors that affected the man and his family. The rangers were friendly and knowledgeable. Be aware that the house is shown by tour only. Call to verify the time of the... More

It's right next Door to Budweiser's Grant's Farm, not by coincidence . The tour was informative . The National Park Service does not disappoint.

We visited with our 5 and 7 year old children and the site did not disappoint. The ranger that lead the tour through the house included our children in the discussion and helped them understand what this site was all about. The film at the visitor center was informative and the museum was enjoyed by both the adults and children.

This can be a quick stop - but is informative. The ranger took us to the house and gave us an introduction - then let us explore on our own.
