“Informative and Self-Guided”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

This memorial is across the courtyard from the McKinley Memorial Library. When my 7 1/2 year old daughter and I went to the memorial, there was a note on the door to go over to the library for admission to the memorial. A librarian let us in and we watched an informative video about President McKinley and then went upstairs to view the exhibit. There was a great amount of presidential candidacy stuff and some furniture from the offices that McKinley used throughout his career as a lawyer until he was president.
The tour is self-guided so you can spend as much or as little time looking at the exhibit as you choose. It was nice to be able to just wander around and look at it what we wanted for as long as we wanted.

“McKinley Memorial”
Reviewed October 11, 2009

On Rt. 46 in Niles is a small museum, the National McKinley Birthpace Memorial. It is a beautiful white stone building. Around the center courtyard are busts of famous area people. Inside the Memorial is a very nice tribute to President McKinley.
