I don't think the reviews do this place justice. If you want to learn about the early years/life in this part of Florida, this is a must-see. This is a free National Park. The free audio tour is excellent and brings the entire place into focus. Yes, the 2 mile entrance road is hard packed dirt, but it is easily drivable at low speeds and sets the mood for the destination. Note: the Visitor Center is a walk beyond the house, to the left. Probably not of much interest to young children, but good for older children to learn about and great for adults. I am guessing it rates as low as it does on TripAdvisor only because it isn't flashy and doesn't solicit reviews like so many attractions in Florida. But, if you have any interest in history, don't miss it. Note: house tours are only available on the weekend, but not necessary to the essence and value of this tour.
