  • Put politics aside....this is for everybody. What a remarkable man and life he's led.
  • Great museum. Lovely grounds. Friendly volunteers and staff.
  • Loved it! Our daughter is 7 and she learned so much about a Bn time period that my husband and I lived through. She loved the press area and the oval office with the desk. The pond and the burial area would have to be my favorite of everything. Good job on keeping everything beautiful.
  • touch history inside. I really enjoy seating on that president chair....lol
  • Really nice place to visit even when the museum is closed nice walking areas and a real piece of the Berlin Wall
