  • This is one of the best presidential libraries we've visited. Allow at least two hours to really take everything in, and more if you want to walk around outside.  more »
  • It was a beautiful place! If you are interested in American history, this is a must see for all ages.  more »
  • This was a delightful visit. To read everything and understand about the US was then and NOW makes me wish we had more candidates of Hoover’s character. The present Prez could learn a lot about humility , the ability to live on the basics in life and most of all, the need to show true compassion for all people! Hoover’s burial site is so simplistic... and he looks down upon the home of his birth. I recommend taking your children and making this a stop on your vacation route.
  • This visit to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum, Home and Library was an eye opening experience. I thought this was the president that couldn’t get us out of the depression, but he was so much more. His accomplishments as a mining engineer, humanitarian and warrior to minimize federal government were inspiring. He may not have had the most glowing presidency, but his life was one worth knowing and emulating by every American. You really should be required to visit every Presidential Library before you run for President.
