Right next to Grant's Farm. We did the tour and our guide was so knowledgeable that it made it even more interesting. It's worth going to. Little film also offered. Free, worth seeing.

This is an awesome place to learn about history, President Grant, Freedom and the civil war. They have a really good movie that explain President Grant life and how he helped to give freedom to the slaves. Nice place to visit.
