I'm not american, but had a lot of respect for people of influence like him. A little far from our hotel, but worth the sight. As soon as you enter you feel the peacefulness of the place. Staff was very helping giving information.

Way uptown and off the beaten path on the banks of the Hudson. Good for Civil War buffs and you can access from the Big Bus tour. Small visitors center, nicely done memorial.

First of all, the day we went the lights weren't working, so we could not go down to the tomb. We could look down on the tomb from above and clearly see Grant and his wife's coffins. My daughter is a huge Grant fan, so...More

A tomb which is very similar to the French memorial for its heroes, it is filled with wonderful information about Grant that is not widely known. In addition, it is a beautiful architectural piece, set in a park designed by Olmsted, which was for many...More

Thank you for your visit and review! You may not have realized there is a visitor center across the street with an exhibit space, a brief film, and a bookstore. There is a map with directions at the entrance to the mausoleum, but we will...More

They have done a nice job with the site. There is a lot of room and it would be nice if they added more history and maybe a short film
