Smallest and one of the least visited National Parks, but totally worth going. Open odd hours so make sure you know before you go. Kosciuszko was a true American hero, and a hero in Poland as well. Learned a lot and the park ranger was super helpful.

The Kosciuszko House is an interesting place, mostly because Kosciuszko is one of the more underappreciated figures in American history. His life is explained in great detail, but it's mostly devoid of actual objects related to him. It's still highly worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood.

I did not know this national park existed until reading about it in the local newspaper. It is well worth the few minutes spent to catch up on the history of the American Revolution. There are no lines and best of all no admission fee.

If you're in Philadelphia to learn about our colonial history, make sure to walk a few blocks away from the Independence Park area to see this small memorial. We would not have achieved our independence without international help, and Kosciuszko was one of those fighters who helped us. Think of him as basically the Polish equivalent of the Marquis de...

Many unsung heroes from this era. Perhaps he would ave liked it that way. He was humble, useful, tolerant, obedient, frugal (spartan), and highly skilled in engineering.

This is one of the National Park System (NPS) properties that is still suffering from budget cuts necessitated by the children in Congress. They have most of what they need, but they could use funding to expand hours. Kosciuszko was important to our nation's founding yet most people have either never heard of him or know little to nothing of... More

We took our four young children to the Memorial on a Sunday afternoon...and were glad that we did. It has very limited hours so check ahead! Kosciuszko only stayed for a few months in one room of this Philadelphian boarding house but the Polish freedom fighter had a great influence on America's history. I had never heard of Kosciuszko but... More

The Kosciuszko house is near many of the tourist attractions in Philly. We discovered it on our way to Jim's Steaks. Stop in and look around. The staff is friendly and willing to share their knowledge. A short film about Kosciuszko's heroism is worth watching. (Visited 2/13/2010)
