Great Historical Find
Very informative tour of not just the house but a great history lesson around the time T. Roosevelt took office. Tour length was just enough and there was time at end to walk around upper level.

Wonderful tour!
Jun 2021
I very much enjoyed our tour of the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site. At this time, tours are limited to small groups, and you must make a reservation. The nice man who led our tour was friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to learn a lot about the history of the time and President Roosevelt. There is free parking at the back of the building.

Lots of information about Teddy, how he came to be President and the things he implemented our country. We watched 3 videos and although our tour guide was very knowledgeable, we did feel rushed thru it. He told us we could take pics, but we weren't in a room long enough to take to many. We were the only 2 in this guided tour and it was the last one of the day. If you're into Presidential history, this is worth your time.

Wonderful historical tour
Sep 2020
A very informative museum dealing with the period of the Pan American exhibit in Buffalo in 1901, the subsequent assassination of President McKinley, and the inauguration of President Theodore Roosevelt.

You see the actual room where Teddy Roosevelt was sworn in and the press he received. This was a learning experience and highlighted the importance of Buffalo, New York at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Inauguration of a president
Sep 2020
What a wonderful experience! Call ahead or book on line before you go. There is free parking available on site and the price is reasonable. They have a stocked giftshop full of Roosevelt items. The tour itself was extremely informative about the president and other key figures surrounding the assassination and assumption of the presidency. There is even an opportunity to have your picture taken at a replica White House office desk and enjoy interactive video exhibits.

Outstanding!
We had an outstanding experience busting the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site. The staff was very friendly from the minute we walked in. Our tour guide Mark was knowledgeable, friendly, energetic and enthusiastic. He made the history come alive during our tour. He answered all our questions. The tour was worthwhile while visiting Buffalo. They have a large parking lot for visitors. We also enjoyed the gift shop. Thanks for a great experience!

Exceptional During These Times
As a national park service fan and social studies teacher, this place has been on my bucket list for quite some time. While 2020 has been an odd year for all of us, the recent reopening of this site could serve as the model of how museums can operate during times like this. Times reservations are available online, and only one household is permitted on a tour at once with a max of 6 people. There is metered parking up front and a parking lot directly behind the site for free. You’ll enter the visitor center and be greeted by the tour guides and rangers. There is an opening video that sets the tone for what the site is about. The gift shop is also located here, with arrows controlling crowd flow. This site is unique in that it covers a specific event in time rather than just preserving a home or telling a longer story. Our guide, Brandon was phenomenal. Can’t say enough about how informative he was. The tour begins as the story of the site does, at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo where McKinley was fatally shot. From there you’ll tour the various rooms of the home. What’s great about this site for kids is that it’s very interactive, and despite not being totally accessible the site has been made as sanitized as possible. If you’re questioning going, leave those doubts behind and make a reservation. The team there is great, you can obtain your passport stamps there, and there are hand sanitizers in every room.

Thank you so much for this very positive review. As the only park in the entire NPS system with a volunteer Board of Trustees who are charged with the management, maintenance, operations, planning, and interpretation of the TR Inaugural Site, and with no federal employees, I'm delighted to know you enjoyed your visit. And, the fact that you found the measures we have taken made you and your family comfortable is very reassuring. I'll be sure to share your review with both the staff and our volunteer leadership and I thank you so much for taking the time to share your observations. Best regards, Stanton H.
