A very informative tour of a fascinating time capsule. All the staff were very knowledgable and helpful, even the lady driving the bus from the visitor centre was very interesting. It is wonderful to visit such a place where once world changing decisions were made.

Haven't had many chances to visit a president's residence, so didn't want to miss this opportunity. The home is exactly as it was in the late 1950's and fascinating to see the Secret Service office and technology of the day. Interesting to note the many...More

A lot of focus is on the Civil War in, around Gettysburg, however we found visiting President Eisenhower's farm worthwhile. The tour through the main house was interesting, after which we walked around the grounds.

Very nice to tour. It is easy to see why the Eisenhowers loved their farm so much. The NPS staff were very knowledgeable and very friendly.

I think they were about $ 7.50 p/p. Can be purchased at the battleground visitor center. There is a shuttle bus from there (no private cars allowed at the farm).

The farm is open year-round, however the hours vary based on the season. The best choice is to check out the official NPS website for Eisenhower NHS; or to call the Site itself or the Gettysburg NMP Visitor Center... More
