  • Marks the first land give away under the Homestead Act. Knowledgable staff, good exhibits downstairs, walking trails. Computers for researching family history. Bring your own jump drive to store information.
  • Homestead is a good example of not only why NPS is one of the largest museum systems in the world, but also how sites like this encourage quotes like this... "The National Park Service is the largest university in the world, with over 400 branch campuses.” ~ Robin Winks
  • Amazing place to go when you love history, or wonder if any of your relatives ever tired to homestead. There are always new events and a friendly smile there.
  • Visited for the total solar eclipse event (day before the actual event to avoid the crowds). They did an incredible job preparing for this event. Leaned a lot and had a good time. A few more food choices on the auditorium side would have helped.
  • Loved it here!! The park employees were so very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. We were greeted and given information and maps. Then we walked all the trails, looked at all of the exhibits and had a fantastic time.
