“Must Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Not as good as the Truman Library but great artifacts and information. Lots of WWII - almost more focused on that than the president himself.

“Excellent history experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

You would be remiss if you pass by Abilene and the Eisenhower Museum.
The current exhibit is concise, insightful and created an emotional experience
that I will remember the rest of my life.

“Outstanding Display in museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The Museum included permanent exhibits about Ike's life, career & presidency, and a special World War II exhibit. This exhibit included weapons, uniforms, etc. for all involved countries, a time line and detailed interpretation of Post WW-I events, the growth of issues and wartime events. Grounds are extensive - be prepared to walk.

“Honor and integrity”

In an age of honor and integrity a president stood tall, led the free world and our nation. The Eisenhower Museum and Library is a great collection of history and memorabilia. Gifts from world leaders, speeches and family history that made a leader.

“A Great Glimpse in WW2 History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Arguably one of the most challenging times in history, Eisenhower led the Greatest Generation in the largest world conflict. His life and times is strongly intertwined with the world at war. The museum does a great job remembering a great leader.
