  • Very nice surprise! We try to stop at National Parks and Monuments when we travel to major cities. The TR Inaugural Site was well worth the $. They have done an amazing job preserving the home where it all happened. They have woven in technology into the site and have done a wonderful job with finding very educated docents.
  • I love this place and I feel like no one even knows about it. The tour is great and the adult field trip tour is even better. The adult field trip is at night and it goes through some really fun alcohol and gun related activities during that time period especially as medical advice. The tour guides are really great and knowledgeable and we just went through the general tour and it was also great. There is so much information to read and see and interact with. Definitely make sure you have 3 to 4 hours.
