We were last here in the 1970's, so it was all fresh and new to us! Seniors & Military - $9.00, which included a 10-minute tour of the Eisenhower homeplace and the Museum. So interesting to see that the house is as it was when...More

We had a group of 40 who visited this attraction. We had less than 2 hours there and it was definitely not enough time to take in all the buildings. This is a must visit place if you are ever in this area.

Presidential Library Museum, homestead, tour with ticket. Reasonable price. Our childhood witnessed Ike and Mamie. Also studied Ike in history books as General Eisenhower.

Be sure to allow enough time to see everything. I enjoyed seeing Mrs. Eisenhower's Wardrobe and the house that Ike was raised in.

We started at the gift shop where the parking lot is and bought tickets. I think the movie plays every half hour. You watch the short movie about Eisenhower and then move on to a tour of his childhood home. Then you go to the...More

This is a very well-done experience. We started in the visitor's center with the 24 minute movie about Eisenhower. A bit hagiographic (I'm not sure that he was the single most important person from 1940 until 1960), but this is his museum, so I can...More

Just felt like what I remember about Ike. Great soldier, great leader, thoughtful, brave, great president. Hard to believe it has been so long ago. Many of the exhibits remind you of what 50's life was all about, a very different time. I could relate...More

Regardless of your politics, this place is worth your time. My husband and I stayed much longer than we expected to, but obligations required that we leave when we did. The museum is more about WW II than his post WW II years as president,...More

We had some time to kill before meeting family in Junction City KS for dinner. What a great way to do it. Very inspiring family story and very well presented museum. We toured the house, the museum and popped into the library.

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
