Même si Walt Withman n a vécu ici que jusqu'à l âge de 4 ans , il est intéressant de voir une ferme meublée comme à l époque et de découvrir la vie de ce poète américain. more »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.
