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

This was a great stop - very helpful and knowledgeable staff and a great tour. Really enjoyed this and recommend it! The tour takes about an hour and then you have time to explore on your own - very nice exhibits - really bringing history to life!!

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

President Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated in this home after the assassination of William McKinley in 1901. The National Park Service has done a great job of creating and preserving this very historical site. You will learn about the the Pan American Exposition of 1901, the times and issues Roosevelt inherited as President, and some of the things he did as... More

As a backup tourist destination in buffalo, the unique approach to sharing history in this house was very effective. Nearly a "do it yourself" tour, the ranger appeared at just the right times and just enough direction to keep this interactive format successful! The digital pictures we took with Teddy at the end were quite a memorable keepsake!

We had dinner during the holidays at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site and it was delightful (they do not ordinarily serve meals). We had visited before and know that this is a first class historical site run by excellent people, including many volunteers. It is worthy of at least a half day visit. It also has a lovely... More
