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

We checked the birthplace website to see when the facility was open. It listed visiting hours from 9 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. We arrived at approximately 11 am on a Wednesday and there was no one in the area. The visitor center was a run down home with a wooden plaque on the wall that indicated that... More

Although President Eisenhower didn't live in Denison for very long, I thought it was a wonderful tribute that the city purchased his birth home and maintain it as a very humble but important part of history. The house and property is kept in splendid condition and there is a very nice statue outside. I am really glad I stopped by.
