The FDR boyhood home is a terrific place to tour. You have access to all the bedrooms, which can't be said about some other presidential homes. The tour of the home provides good insights into the life of the president, his wife, and family. FDR was born in this home and sleep in another bedroom while he was president. Both rooms can be viewed, including the actual bed on which FDR was born. This tour and that of the presidential library nearby are well worth the time. I'd like to go again. Plan at least two hours to see it all.

After seeing the Vanderbilt Mansion this place paled in comparison but one felt that the Roosevelt's were a better kind of rich people. Very family orientated feel here and it was nice. This place needs some repair and hopefully the state or government will get on it.

A treat for any student of history. Walking through the home where FDR grew up and lived his entire life is a joy that provides a lot of perspective on the man. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

The house tour is an integral part of the overall experience. A beautiful, modest house, at least compared to the Vanderbilt Museum. It was an enjoyable tour, given by a knowledgeable docent. The grounds are beautiful, including the barn.
