Been there, done that. Don;t need to do it again. Just a plain 1950's home with a beautiful farm. But not up the standards of other presidential home or library that I have been in.

What a wonderful place to visit. The house and furnishings are as they were when the Eisenhowers lived there. The furnishings are 98% original. We felt as though we were stepping into the past for a visit with Ike and Maime. The docents were knowledgeable and told some great personal stories that made the visit even better.

You have to buy tickets to the Eisenhower historic site and have to take a shuttle to the site. This is a good idea because it keeps the crowds down making it much easier to see everything. A guide meets you at shuttle and takes you through the house. It was very interesting to hear the history. President Eisenhower had... More

I was not sure of this but I was glad I did the tour. It is worth the money. The tour bus driver and the tour guide at the house were both very good. I did learn some very interesting facts.

Wonderful part of Gettysburg experience. Takes about 2 hours. Get a great feel about IKE. After visiting here you understand why he was popular. There was nothing overwhelming about this other than I felt it captured his essence. I would highly recommend

Over the years when traveling around the country I try to visit any of our former President's homes or museums. I forgot that President Eisenhower had a home here and when I saw he did it was a must stop. One must take a bus from the visitors center to the farm and along the way a tape is played... More

Walking into this house is like walking back into the 60s. I was surprised how much of this house reminded me of pictures from my grandparent's house.

The Eisenhower home is trip back in time, It looks exactly like it did when Ike and Mamie stayed there. It has beautiful grounds and is very well kept. You need to purchased tickets and it is only accessible by a special bus. Well worth the visit.

Presidents could keep mementos in Eisenhower's day- these are all on display at his farm. It's as if Ike and Mamie have stepped outside for just a minute because it seems like they'll walk back in any minute. Younger people may not enjoy this site.
