Not much really to see other than its a big old house and has some displays about Lindbergh's flight and related items. One of his old cars is in the house and nice views of the water. Very basic. Could be good if you appreciate his history more

Honestly the town and the state park were more interesting but a neat place to stop and see right on the river.

Charles Lindbergh is this town's most famous former resident. The museum tour includes a tour of the house. The museum exhibit has a couple of movies and exhibits that center around the spirit of Saint Louis I finally learned why the airplane was named as such (local businessmen backed the trip financially) and learned that Mr. Lindbergh dropped out of...

This visit to the historical site of Chas Lindberg's boyhood home was very interesting. The museum was very well done and most informative. The tour of his childhood home was great. We especially enjoyed seeing original furnishings and other items returned to the home by Lindberg himself and the stories associated with them.

Our children are 11 and 9 yrs old. We all enjoyed the tour & reading the placards in the museum. The kids said they wished there had been more "hands-on stuff" however I thought there was plenty! Fun details about Lindbergh's childhood. I liked the way the info was presented. I often get overwhelmed by all the details in a... More

We've visited the museum and taken the tour of Charles Lindbergh's childhood home several times now. It never gets old. We take the grandkids and they are totally engaged, asking questions and soaking up the experience. The staff is always exceptional. Very knowledgable and helpful.

This is the site of portions of Charles Lindbergh's childhood. He also lived much of it in Washington DC because his father was a congressman from Minnesota. One can readily image the multitude of things to do for an inquisitive and bright (though his school grades didn't show it) young man. Poised on a bluff overlooking the mighty Mississippi and...

Just two hours from the Twin Cities, we spent a fun informative afternoon at the Lindbergh childhood home. The home has been newly renovated. Tours run every half hour and last about 45 minutes. His family belongings remain in the home. We even received a sample of his favorite cookie from his mother's kitchen. His father's green car still works... More

We were swept back into the life of Charles Lindbergh as our tour guide narrated a very interesting picture of his lboyhood home and the museum displays artifacts from his life. A couple of films to watch and they were definitely interesting
