While we did not actually tour the house itself, we spent some time in the visitor center & wandered the grounds. The story of how this small house was preserved and then restored is interesting, and that Eisenhower could come from such humble beginnings is...More
The staff made the tour through the little house a personal adventure. She was knowledgeable and pleasant. We visited on a cold rainy day but that didn’t distract from the trip. We were the only ones present so received a private tour. We were given...More
Nice place to visit for historical reasons. A short film about Eisenhower is shown. A short walk to the house where he was born. You are allowed into house w/ tour guide. Visit took approximately 60-90 mins.

The visitor's center and walking around the grounds and seeing the outside of the house are free. There is a small fee to take a docent-lead tour. I would highly recommend the tour. Our docent was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Although President Eisenhower's boyhood home...More
To see the house—is free. If you want a guided tour, small fee. The museum office has a good display of his accomplishments and a short video. Since the Eisenhower’s only rented the house none of the furnishings belonged to the family.
The Eisenhower Birthplace was nice, but Siri/GPS definitely made us work for it! We were first led to a fence where we could see the house, then to an empty field that seemed to be behind it. When we finally found the entrance, it was...More
