The Eisenhower Farm is a must see on your next trip to Gettysburg. The land and the house is beautiful. Stepping into the home is like stepping back in time. We enjoyed the self guided tour of the home and appreciated the pamphlet included with...More

We really enjoyed visiting the Eisenhower's home. It was very informative and we learned a lot. The house is left with the original furnishings and decorations. The first part of the tour is hosted by a tour guide and then it is self-guided. We were...More
We enjoyed the tour so much. It was a delight to tour a Past President's home. We bought both the Gettysburg museum and the Eisenhower tour for $36. I would highly recommend the Eisenhower tour. You are allowed to stay and walk around as long...More
It was amazing that this home belonged to a US President. Our 9 year grandson was impressed about how nice the house was. One feature that I found amazing was the security or lack of it for a President. Secret service had their headquarters in...More
Very nice insight into the Eisenhowers, their lives, and how they came to have this nice ranch. The tour guide was great and the house and grounds worth visiting. Plus, it's a nice respite from the huge crowds at Gettysburg.
A visit to the Eisenhower Home is definitely a must! Such a beautiful home ! I’d love to live there myself! So much historic, period beauty! A truly wonderful experience & a must to visit for anyone coming to Gettysburg.
The farm is open year-round, however the hours vary based on the season. The best choice is to check out the official NPS website for Eisenhower NHS; or to call the Site itself or the Gettysburg NMP Visitor Center... More
The farm is open year-round, however the hours vary based on the season. The best choice is to check out the official NPS website for Eisenhower NHS; or to call the Site itself or the Gettysburg NMP Visitor Center.
However, the schedule is currently as follows(from mid-August)... tours are every hour on weekdays and every 1/2 hour on weekends between 9 and 4. Access is ONLY from Gettysburg National Military Park via shuttle. This schedule will continue until around Columbus day when tours will be scaled back to 4 on weekdays at 10, 11:30, 1, and 3:30; and hourly tours on weekends between 9 and 4.
Keep in mind that the bus leaves the site to go back to the visitor center at 5:15 most of the year. The 4 p.m. tour is a shortened tour. With the 4 bus per day schedule, the final bus leaves at 5 to return to the Visitor Center.
Someone commented that you can drive to the site. This is not the case other than on two occasions. One is in January and some of February (until around President's Day) when visitation is so low that they only offer 2 tours daily. One at 10 and one at 2. However, you still have to get tickets at the Gettysburg NMP Visitor Center and the site can be closed due to weather. It closes when the military park closes due to inclement weather.
The other time you can drive to the site and park is on WWII Weekend. This year, that event will be September 17 and 18, 2016. This is a special living history encampment with various events including guest speakers. Well worth visiting this particular weekend!
