  • It is a nice place to learn about President Hoover's life in this small town. The movie in the museum/library offers a good introduction especially in Hoover's lifelong humanitarian work. The site located conveniently on I80. It is a good place to take a rest as well.
  • We love our National Parks, Monuments and Historis Sites! We can't get enough. Although we've only visited about 175 of them, we keep visiting new ones and can't wait for the next one.
  • Great place. Very educational. Lots of things to see. Always great to walk around outside and check things out
  • Very educational and a lot of information to be learned. The short movie was fantastic. We will go there again. We heard that they change things every six months
  • The tiny cabin where Herbert Hoover was born and his father's blacksmith shop across the street are definitely worth a visit. The nearby presidential library has a superb series of diorama exhibits that really encapsulate his early years in a truly memorable fashion. It is must see stuff.
