We knew little to nothing about RHJackson before visiting, but realized what an important man he was! The center is beautifully laid out, with photographs and displays in excellent order. Take the tour at 10 or 2 to get the most out of your visit. Not suitable for children, though--probably need to be 12-14 to appreciate it.

architectually, historically and judicially, this is a marvelous presentation, an 1850s home which looks as if it just passed through time, with various exhibits, mostly judiciary, of the former supreme court justice who lived her as a boy... verry, low key, parking could be a bit more driver-friendly...

The photos of the trial are one of a kind. Docent very knowledgeable and welcoming. Way too much to absorb in one visit. Pick up the brochure (really almost a magazine) and absorb the history at your leisure.

It was an enjoyable experience. Our tour guide was extremely and knowledgeable. No fee to enter but donations are accepted but they will not tell you that unless you ask. I loved all the information on the Nuremburg Trials and on the Nazi War criminals.

I just completed my tour of the Robert H. Jackson Center, and I came away very impressed. I had an excellent tour guide Linda. She taught me things even I didn't know like the chairs that all the Supreme Court Judges sat in were made in Jamestown. The RHJ Center is first class all the way and is a great... More

What a great collection of history dedicated to the man instrumental in the Nuremburg trials. Plan to take some time and take an official tour with one of their excellent docents.
