You must go to the Chateau if you want to see how they lived back in the day. We have been to it over 30 times and enjoy it just as much as we did the very first time. Very good tours and you are free to ask as many questions as you like. Take you time and enjoy it!

The interpretive center was very interesting and worth the time. The staff was very helpful and the displays were interesting and informative. The tour of the separate house was disappointing. There were three people in the house to explain their portion. The first was fairly interesting. The next two offered nothing unless specifically asked. We were there in the morning... More

Good historical visit with live re-enactments the day we were there. Very interesting and sad history of this famous family and the house is exquisite in detail inside. Well worth spending an hour or so to visit!

The story of the Marquis de More and his relationship with Theodore Roosevelt is very interesting, and we found the tour of the chateau enjoyable. The house and contents are very well preserved with many original furnishings, and the guides were very knowledgeable.

The history and story of Medora begin here. It is a must see for first time visitors to Medora. It is family friendly, and we were able to take a stroller into the house, also. Very interesting!

Great little stop, with very friendly staff. The house is pretty cool, there are a lot of original pieces from when the de moreses were there.
