We came to this museum knowing just a few basic facts about President Eisenhower. I appreciated that in addition to learning about the president, his history and his presidency, the museum and especially the house provided a great deal of context information about the place...More

Construction on this museum and library began before Eisenhower was actually elected president and was originally intended to cover WWII and Eisenhower's role in it. The content devoted to Eisenhower's presidency was a bit disappointing and not as good as other presidential libraries I've visited....More

If you are in an RV or pulling a trailer follow the signs for the oversize parking about one block further south; this will keep you from trying to make a left turn over the railroad tracks. Parking was ample for oversize vehicles. You can...More

The spacious complex is most attractive, with the Eisenhower house a real gem, so special as everything is authentic and original, and as it was. The Eisenhower family could have just walked right back in. The staff at the library and museum were helpful, enthusiastic...More

A little off the beaten path. The grounds are extensive with multiple buildings to house the museum, library, childhood home and chapel. We were heading home when we planned to check it out. We needed more time to fully appreciate everything.

We stopped here on the way to Denver and ended up staying so long we never made it until the next day. This museum and library is just a history buffs dream. From the short film that introduces Ike to the boyhood home tour to...More
