My husband and I visited the Eisenhower Birthplace Historical Park on October 11th and observed part of Eisenhower's Birthday celebration. There were handsome and polite young men dressed in World War II military uniforms as well as well-preserved WWII vehicles and weapons. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and we enjoyed visiting it immensely. We would highly recommend a quick... More

Begin in the visitor center with a film and collection of photos and memorabilia. Walk across the street to the white frame house his parents were renting when he was born. Enjoyed the visit.

We visited Ike's birthplace in Denison, Texas and the movie, museum and tour were all excellent. Our guide was very well informed and it was such a joy to see homage paid to a wonderful man. There's a small museum and it brought back memories seeing all the newspaper headlines, the photos of Ike and the "I like IKE" buttons... More

It's a cool little place, even though it wasn't very big in Ike's life. My tour guide was great! Definitely worth a visit if your in the area.

The Eisenhower Birthplace State Historical Site is the actual birthplace home of Ike, which is the main benefit of this attraction. Many birthplace sites are just replicas or neighbor's houses, but this home is the actual birthplace. There is also a small but nice gift shop as well as a great statue of Ike. However, the information and tour itself... More
