  • In the living environment of the greats had interest, but was looking forward to that. If you display and undergoing renovations, and was very disappointing. It was open in 2016. If you now again "walks the Earth saw, 3/2016 current description of temporary closing in, was overlooked. Location between Union Square and the Flatiron building as the ABC Carpet & is near Home, so easy to reach. When I visit New York next time also would like to go. With expectations from this time are not allowed, but the rating is 4.

  • We decided at the last minute to visit after realising we couldn't get to FDRs house, Hyde Park on the Hudson. We were pleasantly surprised by the professional presentation here of FDRs early life as ...  read more »

  • First, this appears right under the stars on the "review" page: "Museum founded in 1923 offering guided tours of period rooms in historic home of the 26th president.- Google". No, it isn't. This space (footprint/airspace) is Theodore Roosevelt's birthplace, not the house. It wasn't there. The house he lived in was torn down. this is a recreation. It is nice to see the recreation of a period house with period furnishing, and hear and learn about Theodore Roosevelt and his family who didn't live there because it didn't exist. The tour is interesting and worth going on. And, as a National Parks site, it's free. How can you go wrong
  • I am a huge fan of Theodore Roosevelt so going to his birthplace (although re-created) was quite the thrill. As I have come to expect with National Park sites, the tour was excellent. I always learn a great deal about whatever topic is being discussed. Even though TR has had many excellent books written about him, the tour provided some interesting facts about his early life. It is especially interesting visiting this site because most people think of TR as the rugged guy who lived in what is now North Dakota. It is hard to reconcile that image with the reality that he grew up in Manhattan (even though it wasn't quite as bustling when he was born). I haven't been back here in a few years but I definitely intend to start bringing visitors along (as long as they appreciate history).
  • Closed for renovation, supposed to reopen sometime in 2016.
  • It is awesome!!
  • very nice
