“Worth a stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in American history. I would comment, though, that the staff is a little dry and not very friendly.

“Five Stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

If you are interested in history, the Eisenhower Center is a must-see. They do an excellent job of telling the story of Eisenhower, World War II, and his years as President. This is a first-class facility.

“Travel back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

Had a great visit. Lot's of military history (to be expected) and less about policy making than I expected. The campus is spread out, not an optimal layout for touring in adverse weather.

“On Our Bucket List”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2011

Take your time to see it all, including the home and grave site. The full history of Eisenhower and his military career was worth our time.
