This place is wonderful. I think it is easily the best attraction in Buffalo, especially if you like history. We went here and to the Manuscript Museum just up the street for my birthday, and it was great.

The museum is small but very well kept. Actually, this is the house of Mr Wilcox (his friend). The presentation (which includes, pictures, sounds and movies) is really very informative and, in some way, you'll be transported back in time to 1901. Only U$S 10 p/ adult After that, if you have a couple of more hours, take Delaware Ave... More

I felt like we weren't told that we'd have to wait 30 minutes to go on a guided tour when we bought tickets. Then we waited and saw one room, then were seated to watch a 15 minute movie, then saw another room and that was it.

The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historical Site is a nice Historical building, and as in the name, where Past President Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated. This is a nice place when visiting Buffalo you are going to want to see.

I had some free time in Buffalo and stopped by the Theodore Roosevelt National Historic Site. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and extremely enjoyable to listen to. Its not a major historical site, but they have a lot of good information and if you have some free time its not a bad way to spend an hour or so.

The tour was informative and the staff was very nice. There is a little tour and show to show some historical facts. It's definitely not the most exciting place you'll every go, but it was a good stop on our road trip.

Rather simple, they do their best to establish context. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic, there just isn't much too it. Several interactive exhibits. The photo at the end was quite fun.

A must see if you're a history buff. This home where Teddy was Inaugurated was spectacular to see. Lots of interactives and the tour guide was fantastic. He gave the tour as if we were present at the time of McKinley's passing. It was so informative and it did actually feel as if you were in the moment! Free parking,... More
