Could not get into Grant's Farm due to crowd- so stopped here. Amazing national historical site. Please watch the 22-minute video before walking the grounds. Amazing and well worth the time. Great site. Great history.

This is a great place for history buffs. The focus is more on Grant and his personal life. His relationship with his wife and her slave owning father. We were on limited time and couldn't stay for a tour of the house, but just walking the grounds and going through the museum was great. Could have spent a lot more... More

this is okay but I would not make this a priority. it is more a drive pass than a time to spend much time and it's out of the way.

Next to Grant's Farm, off of Gravois, just East of I-44, take a break and see history at it's best. US Grant, left a real mark on this fine location and his in-laws are very important in history and this place in it. Take the family, have a picnic, but don't forget your camera. You will experience history!

Very much enjoyed my second visit to the historical site today; last time I visited the barn museum was not yet opened. Gave a wonderful intimate insight into an important president and war hero, Ulysses S. Grant and his wife Julia and family. I learned a lot on this visit and the grounds are lovely; if you close your eyes... More

Directly across the street from Grant's Farm - you can easily do both in a day! I loved it, the kids were slightly bored. Home and grounds with a small museum. Junior park rangers can earn a badge here.

I never knew much about Grant, other than he was a great hero in the civil war and president of the United States. This visit to his home presented him as a very brave and complicated man. It fills in a lot of information that you would never study in school. A must see for children of all ages.

This is the site of Grant's wife's family farm, and he lived here for several years. The tour was very informative and the ranger that led our tour was excellent. There are very few furnishings in the home, but the house and out buildings are very well preserved and maintained. They also have a nice museum and video.

This is much more than a beautiful historic house with several buildings in a quiet, peaceful setting in the middle of the St. Louis suburbs. Our visit started in the Visitor Center where we watched an interesting film about Grant. We then were led by a Park Service Ranger on a tour of White Haven, the house where Grant lived... More

This is a free attraction. We started with a 20 minute movie about Grant's life which was very interesting. We then toured the house that Grant lived in with his wife and kids. There is also a museum that you can go through fast or spend hours. The gift shop is small but the visit was definitely a bright spot... More
