We were not familiar with the events leading to TR's presidency. This was explained very well. Building is very well kept up.

I could not believe what history took place in this building. It was recently remodeled and is so educational and interactive. The first time I visited we went with our elementary school of K-3rd grades. The children loved it!

This was definitely one of the highlights of our 10 day trip with our daughter and grandchildren. Our guide was excellent and patient with children. He always pointed out things that would be especially interesting to children. We all learned so much more about our 26th president. The kiddies enjoyed the displays, sitting behind the president's desk and earning their... More

I absolutely loved this! I love visiting any of the National Historic Sites, Parks, etc., and I'm also a sucker for touring old homes. That said, I do think those that normally wouldn't pay to walk through an historic property would still enjoy this. Our tour guide, Del, was extremely entertaining and informative, and he made the experience that much... More

This isn't your mom and dad's house museum. Gone are the days of walking through an old house and looking at the walls. This museum has interactive displays, a very cool presentation on Teddy's inherited problems the country faced, and you can even get your picture behind the presidents desk. Fun for an hour or so on your trip to... More

Really close to downtown. You are able to walk through history and they have actual artifacts that Theodore Roosevelt used.

This was a very interesting place to go to. You get to see the room Roosevelt gave his inaugural speech in. You also get a very nice tour that talks about the things going on during that time period.

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
