Enjoyed the tram ride and commentary. However, not much for adults to do (unless you drink beer). I would have liked more historical information. All of the "helpers" were friendly.More

There is a short film in the visitor's center that was very educational. I didn't know a lot about Ulysses S. Grant prior to my visit. The walking tour through the house was also very neat to see. The guides were very knowledgeable.

I enjoyed my visit. The rangers were welcoming and knowledgeable on the tour, part of which is self-guided. The fact it was free was good on it's own merit. There is plenty of parking and a decent little gift shop. The house itself is 60%...More

The tour started with a short film, during which I learned more about Grant than I ever did in school. It was well done and well worth watching. We then toured the home that his wife's family had owned and he purchased. His wife's father...More

Enjoyed touring the home and the grounds. This was Grant's wife's family home. He lived there with her prior to being elected President.

It’s free. The house itself is pretty underwhelming. You do learn the highlights about Grant and the family he married into. There is also. Free film and a pretty informative, small museum
