We fell in love with Presidential Library's in 2009 and have tried to include one in our travels if we are any where close. The Eisenhower Library, Museum, Boyhood home and Chapel are insightful views into the life and times of a true American Hero....More

What a gorgeous property. We spent about four hours there. The introductory movie was terrific. We next got a tour of Ike's boyhood home. It stands in its original location and is filled with original furniture left just as his mother left it in 1946....More

If you're interested in viewing artifacts in storage (assuming there are some that are not on display), your best bet is to contact the museum directly (visit the website for contact information). However, the grounds... More

Depends how much you like to read all the printed materials attached to the exhibits. Most of your time will be spent in the museum as there are 5 sections with a lot to see, especially if WW11 interests you. We spent almost... More
