Walking through the house where FDR was born was a wonderful experience. We could see how the man who brought us out of the depression lived, where his body rests today. Highly recommended.

Had a very enjoyable visit. Learned a lot by a very informed Park Ranger. Beautiful grounds and house. They offer a tram for those folks who are unable to walk from the visitor center to the house...very helpful for one in our group.

This is a guided tour and well worth the effort required to walk from the museum to the house and through the grounds. Disabled folks can be transported by a tram.

The whole house is open. Most rooms are viewed from the doorway and the Park Rangers are amazingly knowledgeable and give lots of information .
