Pros: This is a very neat place I stumbled upon as a destination during a Route 2 motorcycle ride. It's a simple home which offers a decent prospective of one of President Reagan's homes. Provides a glimpse of what it may have been like during his childhood. Cons: The location is not well staffed (understandably) so one must be patient if you're looking to have a guide's input. Also, many of the items on site are replicas and not the originals. Overall: The home is pretty well maintained and you can spend an hour or two looking the place over. It's worth a stopover, but maybe not a main destination.
Great little gem. Worth the tour to learn what life was like for young President Reagan
Great place to visit and learn about Reagan. About 100 miles west of Chicago but well worth the trip. Nice little house with a tour. Plus you get to see Bessy in the garage.
An interesting place for history fans.
Great place. The tour was very informative.
