Wonderful museum. Take a walk back through the lifetime of Eisenhower. Interesting facts and memorabilia from before during and after his presidency. A lot of emphasis on the war. Tasteful chapel and memorial to pay your respects to a great leader. Plan to take a full day or two if you are interested in the subjects as a lot of... More

This is an exceptional facility, very well maintained, excellent displays. Our 12 year old granddaughter accompanied us to the Eisenhower facilities. She enjoyed learning about President Eisenhower& seeing the items which are displayed at the Center. We have been here several times & many years ago were privileged to have played in the Abilene High School Band when President Eisenhower... More

The Eisenhower Museum and his boyhood home were so interesting. Plan your visit so you have plenty of time to view all the exhibits from WWII items to Ike and Mamie's life in the White House. Our elementary age grandchildren went after we did and they enjoyed it as well. It is a wonderful history lesson with so much to... More

This is a wonderful walk through Eienhower's life and times. His boyhood home is located on the property as well as his gravesite. The museum in the library is first rate. Excellent displays on his WWII years and his role in planning the Normandy invasion.

We arrived a little early for the first informational movie and tour of the boyhood house of President Eisenhower's youth, so we visited the chapel where he and his wife are buried. It is small, but serene. The movie was a good introduction to the house and museum and his life. About 15 minutes. We then went to the museum... More

Fun trip to see the presidential library. The buildings are beautiful and nicely presented. But be prepared for a lot of exhibits and reading about the war as there are a lot of exhibits about that. My favorites were the exhibits about Ike's family and Mamie's. We also loved seeing the boyhood home, but felt disappointed that we were not... More

We visited the Dwight D Eisenhower museum while traveling through Kansas. President Eisenhower's boyhood home, school, library, museum and final resting place are all on finely maintained grounds. The boyhood home was filled with original items. The library's second floor had a WWII exhibit. There is a lot of reading in the museum. You could easily spend hours reading everything.... More

Stopped over to see this and wasn't disappointed. A lot of awesome WWII artifacts that were extremely unique. My husband and I are big history buffs so this was great! The chapel where Ike is buried is simple yet beautiful. His boyhood home is very interesting.
