The library is very well done and very interesting. We enjoyed it immensely! The exhibit on Japanese Americans is also worth seeing. We spend more time in the library than the house!

By all means start with the guided tour. It is very educational, both about the physcial facilities and the life and day-to-day travails of one of our most influential presidents. After the guided tour, be sure to visit the Presidential Library, which is unguided. And...More

Visited the FDR Library in June, 2017 spent 7 hours at the Roosevelt Museum and had a wonderful time. A great take in for all. Visited the home, the library, the grounds, Top Cabin and will go back again. Everyone pleasant and very informative.

Park rangers at the FDR and ER sites were very knowledgeable and provided insight of their political and personal triumphs and tragedies. We especially enjoyed Top Cottage and ValKil. But visit them all. So much to learn.

Took this tour along with a tour of the house. Two people in my group had never heard of the Japanese interment into "concentration camps" based solely on race. The special display of this imprisonment was worth the price of admission. Very educational.

Visited here today and I must say it is must do stop. Covered the history of FDR very well. The website says 1 hour visit time I believe and we could have spent 5 hours here and not still not have seen everything.

Our first trip to a presidential library and this was the first of the presidents to have one built. Very interesting journey back in time with a really moving video of FDRs funeral procession. Worth visiting!

What a wonderful museum. The exhibits are laid out chronologically and are easy to follow, It's a self-guided tour so you can take your time. I spent two hours there and didn't get to see everything. Plan on at least three hours. I look forward...More

Although we have lived close, 2 hour car ride, for 40 years, this was our first visit. We are sorry we waited so long as we really enjoyed the day. Every exhibit hit home as to the significance for our country. Our 13 year old...More
