I learned that there was plenty I needed to learn. The displays in the museum were terrific. I really feel like I got some much needed education. I was very satisfied with my experience and so glad to have made this stop.

Eisenhower's museum gives a great overview of a man who served as both allied commander of WWII and President of the United States. You will be able to tour his childhood home as well as view the collections and information from his presidency and service in WWI and WWII. Worth the drive!

We had no idea, that this Presidential museum had so much history tied to our countries history ! It covered WW2 and Ike's Presidency, as well as his childhood home. Plus you have to ride the carousel behind the complex, don't miss it. Plus for the ladies, there were plenty of Mamie's personal wear, purses , gowns, jewelry, shoes, etc.,... More

This was a true lesson in history and a well run facility. Every staff member from docents, to maintenance seemed friendly and interested in how our day was going. Questions were answered and directions given in friendly, easy to understand words. The facility is quite spread out between four buildings so a lot of walking is involved. However all the... More

Our family had a great time. The museum was awesome, the house was small but neat. The memorial building was nice as well. It took us about 2 hours and 30 minutes to do all 3 things taking our time.

This is a wonderful presentation of the President and consummate soldier who rose from humble beginnings. The story is told in great detail and surrounded by hundreds of artifacts. Allow 3-4 hours to see and enjoy it all.

Learned a lot when we went into his boyhood home. The gentleman inside was very knowledgeable and had his speech well memorized.

You certainly get to know a lot about a wonderful man. He started from humble beginnings as demonstrated by his boyhood home. There are some exhibits that are being worked on, but you can still learn an awful lot. Well worth the time

This is only the second time I've been to a presidential library but it did not disappoint! There is a visitors center, his childhood home, museum, library, and memorial all on one peaceful campus. The visitors center has a 20 minute movie that gives an overview of his life. The museum has so much military history, this really kept the... More

I spent most of my time in the museum. Make sure you view the highlight films. They are working on some of the exhibits currently, but still worth a visit.
