Wonderful interactive museum with guides, plus piped in voices, the smell of coffee and the clicking of the telegraph as Theodore Roosevelt prepares to take the oath of office. The program gives you a sense of what was happening in the country at the time, giving voice to the diverse groups trying to gain respect as Theodore took office. Well... More

Visiting the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural NHS takes advance planning. The museum visit is only by guided tour. The National Park Service strongly recommends reservations because the site is very popular and because guided tours are limited to 12 people. Reservations can be made online through the link on the website. They like people with reservations to check in 15 minutes... More

The assassination of William McKinley, the Pan-American exhibition, Theodore Roosevelt's rise to the presidency (and the issues American faced) and all captured here. Not only captured, but very cleverly presented. This is definitely worth a visit.

This site is worth the time to learn more about the man who became President after McKinley was shot in 1901. In addition to learning about his actual inauguration, you can explore an interactive museum exhibit or take a guided tour of the premises. The docent was knowledgeable and kept the young children engaged who were on the same tour... More

Enjoyed an hour and a half at the site. Guided tour was quite informational. The interactive exhibits kept my teens interested. We are TR fans, so they enjoyed learning a little more. Family rate for four of us was $25. Nicely preserved historical site.

National sites are the best and this one was true to course. So much to learn and they did a fantastic job with the tour , the movies and the keeping you involved throughout. Came out of there learning a lot and even the kids took away more than I thought they would. A hidden gem

I had no idea what to expect; my wife and I were on a trip to Vermont and stopped off in Buffalo for a break. I learned a great deal and had some fun playing in the exhibits, so I can't complain.
