  • Even if Walt Withman n lived here until the age of 4 years, it is interesting to see a farm furnished as to the time and to discover the life of this American poet.

  • Very friendly and accommodating Executive Director! She allowed us to tour the museum when we showed up on a closed day, since we were visiting from so far away. It was very peaceful spending time in the space.
  • This is kinda cool but feel Whitman is flopping in his resting place over the mall in his namesake. The grounds etc are great educationally. I found the staff unaware of their workshops i inquired about, and have to agree with the other cmnts about boredom... but i didn't need them to be amusement park Muppets to enjoy why this place is preserved. They have a nice gift shop for those bookish types.
  • What a fun little place! I came here for a poetry event for an association I belong to and I never knew of its existence. I learned a lot of history about Walt Whitman and for a poetry reading the space was large and accommodating. I was also a nerd and read all of the quotes and history about Walt Whitman. It was a little hard to find, and it is somewhat obscured by the road, without a lot of signs or anything indicating that it is there. Glad I finally stumbled upon this little LI gem.
  • Very friendly and engaging tour guide, especially for small children, but knew plenty of answers to my questions too. Really brings literary history alive!
  • Fun for the kids.
