The only thing that stopped me from giving this a five star review is that you have to pay to get there, even if you have a National Parks Pass. You must take their bus, but the bus costs $9 a person. Our guides were...More

Interesting tour of Prez home. It’s situated in lovely PA Dutch country near Gettysburg. A bit shabby and I suspect underfunded. Fascinating to observe how middle class their lifestyle was, at least for a President. Can walk around the farm in nice weather. Well worth...More

The Eisenhower farm house is fascinating. The home has the appearance that the Eisenhowers have just stepped out for a few minutes. The park rangers & volunteer tour guides are knowledgeable & friendly. Highly recommend.

This was a great family friendly activity that included a guided tour of the house and general layout of the grounds, before the staff let you tour on your own. The biggest drawback was the times available. There were very limited tour times, ( I...More

Interesting piece of local and national history that provides a window into the life of President Eisenhower.

I think they were about $ 7.50 p/p. Can be purchased at the battleground visitor center. There is a shuttle bus from there (no private cars allowed at the farm).
