Good national park service site providing history of U.S. Grant. While you might expect to learn about Grant the hero or Grant the president, this NPS site focuses on his personal relationship with his wife (and children), and the different families each came from, and how this contributed to who Grant was. Grant is portrayed sympathetically at this museum, and... More

It was extremely humid the day of our visit so we sweated a lot, but loved our time here. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and told the stories like he had lived it. The house is beautifully restored although due to fire code you can't go upstairs. There are no original furnishings so use your imagination. There are videos... More

The Ulysses S Grant NHS is not as impressive as I imagined. I am an avid presidential history buff so I've visited many presidential homes and museums. The attraction here is not the house. It is not furnished and only offers moderate insights into the Grant's lives. However, the state of the art museum and visitor center are excellent and... More

The early home of President Grant is nicely restored as are a few farm buildings. Parking and admission are free. The 20 minute film gives a great overview of Grant's life and should be seen before walking around the farm. A guided tour of the residence is available. The historical site is right next to Grant's Farm and we enjoyed... More

The Historical site is composed of three main structures: the Welcoming Center, the Museum, and the Dent (his wife's) family home. The Museum should be your focus. The exhibits help remind us about the profound influence that Grant had in the Union prevailing in the Civil War and in the initial implementation of key amendments to the US Constitution that...

Very pleasant experience, nice grounds, tour guide to explain the history and uses of the site. Parking near entrance is $10 per vehicle. Tram ride around the grounds is free with guide explanation of what you are seeing, lots of various animals, kids can even feed the goats if they want. Lots of old carriages, and the Clydesdales.

Very nice piece of St Louis history next to Grant's Farm. A must stop for Civil War and American History buffs. Staff was friendly and the museum and visitor center are very nice.

This is a hidden gem located adjacent to Grant's Farm. I went on a Saturday morning. Everyone was driving past the historical site to get to the Grant's Farm site. They didn't know what they were missing. Start with the tour of the house given by a ranger. After a short introduction, you can explore the house by yourself. Each... More

So many people know of Grant's Farm and possibly never go to this attraction. What a shame that would be! Take an extra hour or two to tour this site! It's a simple tour, not overwhelming information and you get to be in the house of a former president from years ago! Our tour guide was great, informative and friendly.... More
