For the most part this was a great visit. The only negative was the portion of the museum that involves cattle drives and promotes the town of Abilene. Rest of the facility is great, love to go back in the future.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Eisenhower Library and Museum. Especially enjoyed our visit to the Eisenhower home. The Library and Museum is a bit "cramped," but that is partly due to the fact that it was originally designed to commemorate Eisenhower's military career,...More

Dog friendly grounds, but not inside. The Presidential Library and Museum is very impressive and provides a lot of detail and insight into the life and career of a fine man and President. Well worth the time to see everything it has to offer.

There is a video to watch while in the admissions/gift shop area; it gives an overview, but by the end of the day, we wished we had not taken the time. The info in the museum more than covers everything in the video. We really...More

They've done an exceptional job putting this complex together. It's a fitting tribute to our war hero and 34th president. You start by entering the fully stocked gift shop where you purchase your entry tickets and view the must see movie in the theater on...More

Staff was very knowledgeable on the President and all the things that happen in his life. Easy to tour and very easy to walk around. Gift shop has many items for sale about the President. The file was excellent!

How do I view artifacts that are held in the library that are not usually displayed? Can a viewing appointment be made or do I have to wait for it to be on display in an exhibit.

Depends how much you like to read all the printed materials attached to the exhibits. Most of your time will be spent in the museum as there are 5 sections with a lot to see, especially if WW11 interests you. We spent almost... More
