Great story about the birth of the Presidential Library. FDR working right out of the Library office during WW2 really added to the uniqueness of the Library. The memorabilia there is great. I also paid the extra price for the home visit. Worth the money. The guide was very informative and did a great job discussing the home. An amazing piece of American History.

The library is a well-presented history of his presidency and somewhat of his life. The physical displays are more compelling than the recitation of acts and accomplishments.

A visit worth the drive from NYC. The first presidential library, it does a good job explaining FDR’s role in history. As well as any.

What is special here is the added chance to see his home and understand his personal side. Sort of a combination of The Hermitage (Jackson) and Clinton’s library for understanding period life and politics.

A good trip for families, especially when the kids have had some basic American history.

The displays are well done and well explained. My only comment is about the one big miss of his administration concerning the Japanese Internment. The display on that was quite small.

What’s better than visiting fdr home on a president weekend? They also had a fdr impersonator! He looks like him sounds like him. Very great performance and many good information. At the end he even took question from audience! His wit and stick to character was really a treat. My toddler could not stay but my 7 yr old took it all in!
The house and library were really great with tour guide and tons of information. I think adults and kids both had a great time!!!
