    Very entertaining for locals and visitors alike. It's not every day you get to learn about the only man to ever be the head of two branches of government. If you like history, it's worth taking a look at. The family house is the best part!

    Kinda small. The video in the visitors center is very interesting. Ruth, our tour guide was very friendly and informative.

    Parking is tight. I didn't expect much going into this visit, but I was impressed with the tour guide's knowledge and the quality of the tour. Good exhibits about Taft's life and career. The family and I learned a lot. Expect to spend about an hour to an hour and a half.

    When to get a national park pass - didn't go thru this house. Will do that this winter.

    Very nice visitor center. Tour was interesting and can be tailored to the tour group. With children, the tour guide made sure to be efficient.
