Over-all pretty interesting. It is supposed to have been left as it was the day FDR died. Plenty of antiques from around the world. The tour guide was fair, but had plenty of knowledge, but kept repeating herself. It was worth the cost of admission...More

Franklin D. Roosevelt was born, raised and used the home until his death in 1945. The home is exactly the way he left it. The place is well preserved and was quite "homey." There were many accommodations made for FDR's polio.
