Be prepared to allow a full day to tour this place because of the mass property and things to view. Only spent three hours here as we were busy touring other parts of Washington DC earlier in the day, What we did see gave us a sense what Washington was all about. For example, we viewed the film, saw the Mansion than walked some of the grounds. Besides being President, he appeared to be both a complex man plus well connected after being President. This is also one of those sites in Washington DC that people from around the world want to check out for themselves. Have a well stocked gift shop and Educational Centre to learn more about him. Highly recommended for touring purposes!
