This place is nearly brand new, having been saved from being turned into condos in the mid-eighties. David, our tour guide was very good, informative and laid-back. Our Thai exchange student pronounced him "easy to understand." He gives a short talk about the history of...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the home and museum. We learned a lot about Grant as a person, a statesman and president.

My husband and I loved visiting the homestead and the museum that accompanies it. There was a multitude of information and we loved every bit of it. The house seemed so small compared to houses of today. I laughed at the largeness of furnishings on...More

Good solid museum, house tour is excellent. Generally have good speaker series that is free if you happen upon on of those, do attend. Some re-enactors and other historical figures present new views on Grant's time.
