Allow an hour or two and stop to see the Eisenhower House, Museum, Library and Chapel. It isn't very far off the highway and it is worth seeing. Very nicely presented campus. Interesting to see. Learned a lot.

How do I view artifacts that are held in the library that are not usually displayed? Can a viewing appointment be made or do I have to wait for it to be on display in an exhibit.
