I was pleasantly surprised by this place. It's much smaller than other President's homes, but the staff/tour guides make up for that with shear knowledge of this cool president. When we went it was pouring down rain, so we didn't spend much time checking out the grounds or out-buildings, but even without that it was well worth the trip. The main house is pretty basic, though very authentic. Our tour guide was fabulous. He knew a lot about Monroe and his life and family and took pride in sharing that information in a way that kept your attention. The groups are small (there were only 7 in mine) which make it easier to ask questions and dialogue about what you're seeing/hearing. Very good!

The staff is amazing! They are super knowledgable! The grounds are expansive and the house is smaller than expected but the tour explains why! Check out groupon for tour discounts occasionally!
