What impressed both myself and my wife was that over 70% of the furnishings are original and they allow you to take pictures (not flash) inside the home. Tour last between 1 and 1 hour and 15 minutes and you really go at your own place. Only 4 people in our group here in mid March. It is interesting to... 更多
Easy to reach and free parking on the sidewalk. Entry fee was 10$ each. The tour guide was very well informed and gave us an overview of all the artifacts which have been extremely well preserved from the mid-1800s.

Presidential sites are always informative and this one really gives an up close look at the home of the 23rd president. Toured all parts of the home with a welcoming tour guide and allowed to see many artifacts without feeling like the things were too important for the public to get a good look at.
Grand home built in 1875. A nice tribute to an overlooked president. Well worth the stop. Free parking in the rear and along the street.

No one else was there the day we arrived, so we had a private tour! Docent very knowledgeable. Top floor was closed for exhibit rotation- that was disappointing that we could not even peek in to see the room. Lots of original items.

Excellent - Ok I am a bit of a nerd and I like going to Presidential houses. This is the first one I have been to that was not owed and operated by the US Government, or a huge foundation. My daughter and I had a private tour with an excellent guide, with a wealth of knowledge. Loads of tidbits... 更多
Although most of the focus was on his life and living in Indianapolis, there was some good information on what he accomplished as President. Very informative and educational for adults and school-age learners. One gleamed what life was like before and after being President, and all life brought him, good and bad.
