  • This is a fun little place to visit if you're interested in history. You have to take a one hour guided tour and they start on the half hour. There are a few rooms which are in good shape and the doce...  read more »
  • A bit of a look into the President's childhood home. A small entrance fee. After watching a brief, interesting video in an adjacent home, visitors enter the boyhood home. We were greeted by a wonderfu...  read more »
  • Was very informational. Defiantly worth a visit with the family if your interested in history! Very small and very limited moving areas. 
  • 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.
  • Great place. The tour was very informative.
  • Very good tour, worth the pennies
