Stopped for a brief visit and learned so much. The guides (we had Jerry) are clearly passionate about this and made the experience top notch. It took about one hour to do the tour but if you are quick maybe it could take 45 minutes.

Never knew TR was sworn in in Buffalo and the historic house is run by the NPS. Fairly new exhibits (six years old) are very well done and put Roosevelt in the context of his times--robber barons, racial divide, immigration, crooked politicians--in other words just like today. Really worth a two hour visit.

Had a nice time at this stop. Friendly staff and very informative and interesting. Lots of interactive things to do concerning McKinley, the Pan-American Exposition, and the assassination.

A visit to the Inaugural site consists of a guided tour and interactive exhibits. The tour begins with an overview leading up to the Inauguration. The tour then moves into various rooms of the house and includes an audio-visual presentation of events that would confront Roosevelt. The tour then moves into the room where Roosevelt was sworn in. The tour... More

My fiancé and I expected a simple tour through an old house. It was much more, the guide through the house was also very interactive. Tour guide did a good job telling the story of how TR came to be president. Tour was short, maybe 20-25 minutes.

What a pleasant, unexpected guided tour! This is much more than just a tour of a home - it is interactive and informative. We unknowingly arrived a bit after the final tour time of the day, yet when our tour guide, Mark, saw us coming into the building, he greeted us with a smile and enthusiasm by giving us an... More

One of Buffalo's many historical sites, this is where President Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated after the assassination of William McKinley. The house is very well preserved and the guided tour is full of great wisdom from the past. If you like going to real places of historical significance, then you will love place !

We enjoyed the guided tour - which brought to life the events surrounding Teddy Roosevelt's inauguration. The home is beautifully restored and would be interesting to visit even without the associated history. Upstairs there are interactive displays that were great and added to the overall experience. Couple tips. This site is part of the National Parks - so if you... More
