“Good historical tour”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

House where Teddy was inaugurated. Uses guided tours to tell the story. Worth the $10. Also has interactive stuff at the end of the tour that is fun to do, even for adults.

“Small site with interesting history”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Very small site. Even though I was the only person on the tour, the guide was very officious and when I was asking questions, he cut me off. I'm not sure it's worth the detour...especially for the $10 entrance fee. I'm sure there are better places you can go to get a good understanding of President Roosevelt. The interactive displays were nice.

“Teddy as you never knew him”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

This museum was extremely well done. The day I went Teddy was actually there! The displays are well done and interactive. You can e-mail yourself a picture of yourself as president in the oval office as Theodore Roosevelt

“Site with an interesting story to tell”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The self guided tour was interesting and the docents are eager to talk to visitors. Not much of the interior is original but they do try and provide lots of information and some interactive exhibits.
