A good way to decompress and enjoy an afternoon at Ike and Mamie's home. Amazing how modest the house is. See the difference in Presidential security from the 1950's to today. This tour is well worth the price.

I highly recommend visiting the Eisenhower farm on your trip to Gettysburg. It is always interesting to learn about the lives of presidents before and after their time in office.

While in Gettysburg, it is worth spending about 2-3 hours, or more, visiting Eisenhower's only home they ever owned. This farm is very peaceful and a house is reflects the way they lived their lives after the Presidency. Lots of artifacts are there and the...More

This off shoot tour in Gettysburg was a hidden surprise. Eisenhower is iconic, but in an understated way - hence easy to miss in history. This tour was so interesting, and a wonderful break for all the battlefields and downtown chaos. We at first thought...More

Interesting place to visit. Book a tour bus from the Visitor’s Center (they run every hour on the hour) to take you out to the Eisenhower working farm. It will take you back to the 50’s and give you an intimate look into the lives...More

If you're interested in the Cold War, the Eisenhower Farm is great way to learn about it. Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes for the weather. Frequently, there are Ranger Talks about Ike & Mamie and their time here. In order to access the farm,...More

We took the bus from Gettysburg Visitor’s Center to Eisenhower farm (which is the only way you can access the farm). When we got there, a guide told us some interesting things but it was outside in a cold wind and too long to stand....More

Do yourself a favor and take advantage of this tour of Ike and Mamie's only home. The home tour is led by park service guides in the beginning and then is self-guided. You are then free to tour the farm at your leisure. Quite stunning...More

I think they were about $ 7.50 p/p. Can be purchased at the battleground visitor center. There is a shuttle bus from there (no private cars allowed at the farm).
