  • Fascinating history and a must for Teddy Roosevelt fans. Our guide was very informative and entertaining. Beautiful house tucked away in buffalo. Excellent preservation of the era right down to the place settings and gorgeous wood throughout. Very worthwhile.
  • The TR Inagural Site is steeped with rich history and provides an amazing insight to the challenges faced by our nation at the time of President McKinley's assassination. Packed with artifacts, multimedia and interactive presentations, a visitor will learn about the social and political challenges of the era, the Pan American Expo, and the transition of presidential power. Plan to spend a few hours here. The docents give an excellent tour, and kids can enjoy the Junior Ranger exercises.
  • Had a wonderful time as always! Chris Roth, volunteers and staff are all awesome!
  • Another great place to visit in the city of Buffalo, especially if you like history. Free off street parking.
  • Very informative small museum about an unusual event in American history. Well worth the $10 for the tour. Expect to spend 45 minutes here.
