Since we are great admirers of Ike we really wanted to enjoy this museum. Sadly, it is poorly organized, badly lit and not terribly interesting. If you want to see how it should be done visit Truman's Museum in Independence, MO

Enjoyed the boyhood home tour, and the museum. The introdution movie was a bit over the top! A great review of Eisenhower's command. I hought it was light on the presedency. Woth the $9 admission.

Very interesting. Includes info on the cattle drives to Abilene. Nice campus, so much to see in the museum allow at least 3 hours then it is still a rush to see the house and the grave site. Beautiful grounds

This is a very well-done museum. Covers the Eisenhower political years, but also his childhood home is here.

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
