“Great family day”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

We visited the LWH with four young children on a cold and blustery December day. The museum was interesting for everyone from 6 to 65. The house was surprisingly small but remarkably well preserved and seemingly as if the Roosevelts had just stepped out for a moment. Staff were extremely helpful. The grounds were also lovely and probably more enjoyable on a warm day. My only complaint was that it was difficult to find pricing for tickets on line. It is $10 for adults and $6 for children 6 to 17. Well worth it. This also includes the pools museum about a mile away where you can feel the warm springs.

“A jewel in Warm Springs”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

this is an important piece of history that all need to see - the grounds are beautiful and the Little White Hose is a great example of a time when a president needed to get away and enjoy life during a very tragic time in American history - to see FDR as he truly was is a great lesson and wonderful place to go to.

“FDR's Warm Springs”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The tour of the Little White House and Warm Springs pool was nice. The museum had some interesting exhibits and a fair presentation of the history of his life and times. We drove from Macon, Ga through the hills and FDR State park -- the scenery was very beautiful in mid-September and there was little traffic or crowds. A nice trip is the countryside and an interesting spot to visit.

“Interesting Bit of History -- Altered a Bit”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

They have glossed over FDR's affair that he was having with his mistress (Lucy Page Mercer Rutherfurd) who was present when he died.

I wish they would remain true to what actually happened and not soften history but it is what it is.

If you are interested in FDR and his legacy, you ought to go see this place.

“FDR's Little White House / Warm Springs Pool”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Crowds were non-existent in late October; leaves were turning. Having already visited his home in Hyde Park, NY and his memorial in DC, this was a very meaningful day for us. We lunched at the quaint Bon Vivant restaurant in PIne Mountain, GA, drove thru FDR State Park, toured the LWH with its accompanying museum and grounds, and walked thru the rebuilt Warm Springs Pool area which was a short way down the road. Here we learned more about FDR's purchase and overhaul of the property so he could invite many polio victims to enjoy the warm waters just as he did. We learned that he was a farmer and promoted forest restoration on his property. It was well worth the drive from our timeshare unit west of Atlanta.
