    This is a really great historic site. The park rangers are really good and knowledgeable. On the other hand, the volunteers are not so great. This last visit, I asked a question receiving the following response: "I don't know, I'm not from around here." It was a simple question related to the park! She never offered to ask a ranger... nothing!

    I learned so much here about President Grant that I didn't know before! The museum is unique and laid out well. The grounds are just gorgeous and the Rangers are very friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend a visit!

    This is an excellent historical site. The tour is the best. They bring you through the old house and after you are free to look around. I really enjoyed it.

    Small, but nicely done. Very informative. Sadly, no original furniture exists having been lost to a fire.

    The museum has some interactive exhibits kids would enjoy. The house is sparsely furnished but the outbuildings were interesting. The officer was very knowledgeable and funny.
