I have come to really enjoy the Presidential libraries that I have been able to visit, and each one has made me want to see another. My misconceptions about President Hoover were put to rest when I was able to put his life, and multitude of good works, in perspective.

Very interesting place :) it’s not quite as showy as some of the newer libraries, but considering it was the first presidential library, it is very nice :) loved the outdoor area / sights as well!

On our way back to Ohio from South Dakota we stopped at this presidential library because we enjoy history and realized we didn't know a lot about Hoover.

This library and museum is off the beaten path, but is easily accessible from the interstate. It is extremely well done and you will learn so very much about this president. The exhibits detail his entire life and as you move through his life line you get a good perspective about the challenges he faced both personally and as a politician. It also helps you appreciate how much things changed over the years.

If you like history, don't miss this.

Had a very enjoyable time visiting this museum and walking in the park. The information on Hoover is great and it was very nice to learn about the private side of him and his philanthropy. The walk around the period area and park is also very nice. In addition, the park staff was very friendly and helpful answering questions and spending time discussing Hoover, his family and their life.

This is not a boring museum. There are many interactive exhibits, videos, an actual room from the Waldorf Astoria Hotel where Hoover once lived, and many artifacts from the former president and his time period. You get a good picture of the generous man he was.
