We visited this home and took a tour of this beautiful property with a tour guide who gave us much insight to the life of a well loved president and his wife. We paid 18 dollars but it was well worth the educational tour and...More

The tour guide was excellent. The home is indeed a gem! The grounds are lovely. The place is not handicapped accessible which is interesting because FDR was wheelchair bound. He would not allow an elevator to be installed. He used a dumb waiter and pulled...More

I literally could not make it through the entire museum. Roosevelt was a three term President- so you have a lot of history. There is a lot of reading of exhibits. But its all good if you make the time. I do not think anyone...More

Worth the trip to Hyde Park and not to be missed, along with the library/museum. The house tour is fascinating and the guides are excellent in their knowledge.

We didn't know FDR's "home" was owned by Sarah. It's a beautiful place, probably typical of the ultra-wealthy of the era.

Once seen, go to Eleanor Roosevelt's home. BTW, the Park Rangers were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. SO glad we went!

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...More

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...More

The whole house is open. Most rooms are viewed from the doorway and the Park Rangers are amazingly knowledgeable and give lots of information .
