Very we'll put together presentation with bits of hands on information as we'll. Exhibit covers from the 1901 Pan-am exposition to the McKinley assassination, and T.R.'s swearing in.

We were provided a very informative tour by Monica, a docent. Multimedia presentations incorporate national and world events of the time period of the inauguration as well as the event itself. After the tours there are 2 rooms of interactive exhibits where you can take your time to learn more on what specifically interests you either about McKinley, TR, or... More

This is a recommended site that informs visitors about the Pan-American Exposition and TR's assumption of the presidency. Parking is behind the building- watch for the turn off from the main street (it shares a driveway with a bank ATM). Visitors start in a neat room with information and displays about the Pan-American exposition which took place in Buffalo around... More

If you go to Buffalo, New York you have to stop at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site. I went in there knowing not much and I came out feeling like I was at the Inaugural. When you go take the guided tour, you get to go further into the site. The tour makes you feel you are in... More

Dropped in to refresh my memory of all the changes that have been made to the site as I have been visiting since the early 70s. You can only go through the Wilcox Mansion on a guided tour nowadays. Much information is given via videos and tour guides. The guides do an excellent job, not only dispensing information, but also... More

Tour guide at this historic site was extremely knowledgeable about the inauguration site for Theodore Roosevelt. The home was very impressive and we were able to take digital images of the various rooms as long as we did not use a flash. Great way to spend some quality time in Buffalo.

The multi-media display at the Wilcox Mansion is very well designed and presented. It gives you a good idea of the assassination of McKinley and the inauguration of Roosevelt. The building is nicely renovated.
