  • great tour.Good insights into teddy roosvelt. Fun to see the house he was born in and grew up in or a least an accurate recreation(original was torn down)Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and interesting.You can only see the house with a tour on the hour though there is a small museum downstairs.
  • Nice tour, beware- it runs on the hour, but not noon.
  • Great renovation and window into Theodore's birthplace.
  • 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).
  • 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
