This museum and sites deserve two days to be fully appreciated. The World War Ii history is extensive, and visiting exhibits tied in beautifully.

Beautiful campus with several buildings including Eisenhower's boyhood house, museum, library, place of meditation, and gift shop. Great museum with tons of WWII artifacts.

My favorite part was the family home, because of it's preservation- all items located within are original to the Eisenhower family and have been preserved since the President's mother's passing in the 1940's.

The museum is fantastic and full of surprises. Beautiful grounds, as well.

There's so much to love about a Presidential Library. Eisenhower's boyhood home is on the property, which is very cool. This was the first Presidential Library that I ever visited, and I was hooked!

Spent the afternoon here. I could've spent more time in the WWII museum. There was so much to look at and read! Lots of memorabilia. Also check out the short video in the gift shop. Talks about Eisenhower's life as in the military and as president. The childhood home was also very well preserved. The guide that walked us through the house was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Walked away feeling very patriotic.

Beautiful grounds. The museum's WWII exhibit was one of the most extensive I've ever seen. I wish that I'd had more time to spend taking it all in. The Place of Meditation was a simple, yet breathtaking experience. The space really did prove to be a quiet spot for meditation. I would recommend this be the final stop, so that you may reflect on the day and President Eisenhower's time while in his presence. This was definitely one of my favorite Presidential Museums that I have visited.
