Our tour guide, Shannon B., was very knowledgeable and engaging in bringing alive the history of this marvelous home. We appreciated that most of the furnishings and decor in the home are original. It was fascinating to learn how FDR was able to move between the floors of the home by placing his wheelchair in the dumb waiter. It was... More

We saw the Vanderbilt Mansion earlier in the day, and then proceeded to this home so by comparison it felt much smaller and more modest, which of course it is. But it is filled with treasures and was an extremely worthwhile visit. Our tour guide was not fabulous-kept trying to make jokes that were not all that funny but you... More

Excuse me if I'm a little confused, but I loved seeing everything at this National Park. I have a senior pass!! What an excellent thing to have. We went everywhere, so I can't remember which one had the most Roosevelt history. I think it was the Delano Roosevelt Home. I have great photos, but they are personal ones. I am... More

Outdoors gorgeous scenery. FDR laid to rest on the property. Very interesting historical spot. Must plan enough time to schedule house tour and view the museum,... More

A fantastic tour of the childhood home of Franklin D. Roosevelt. This tour talks about Roosevelt's family, his life, and his disability. This tour was very informative and filled with fascinating artifacts. The tour guide told stories that happened to Roosevelt in the home. This is a great day trip for the whole family.

We had a great tour to FDR's home in Hyde Park given by the National Park Service. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable & enthusiastic in his presentation. The tour included admission to the presidential library & museum. You could easily spend 2-3 hours in the museum alone. We have been to the FDR Memorial in Washington, DC and were familiar... More

This is a great tour of the FDR house. I'm certain that the quality of your tour guide can add or detract from the visit, but ours was wonderful. There's a lot of history to be learned at the house. I'd recommend watching one of the FDR specials that are available from PBS before going to this Nat'n Historic Park.... More

The National Park Service gives a fantastic tour of FDR's home. Although you can't get access into all the rooms you can into them. It's a wonderful feeling to in the home of one of our greatest leaders. And maybe the best 1st Lady!
