Nice touring a site with mostly original furnishings, not reproductions. You're seeing the actual pieces that were used. A glimpse back at a very romantic and historic era.

You buy your ticket at the visitor's center, the take a shuttle at the appointed time. We stayed at the farm for about 1 and 1/2 hours. The NPS interpreter outside was actually not helpful - full of himself. The guide inside the house was...More

A separate tour when at Gettysburg (fee $9) but very well worth it. Gen. Eisenhower was my 2nd president, but the 1st one I remember. Everyone knows of his brilliant career as a military figure and president, but this is his story of how he...More

Visiting this well kept home is an inspirational experience. One would think the Eisenhower's had just stepped out. We enjoyed excellent tour staff and well maintained signage. It reflects the down to earth humility and life style of a great man who never forgot his...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).

The farm is open year-round, however the hours vary based on the season. The best choice is to check out the official NPS website for Eisenhower NHS; or to call the Site itself or the Gettysburg NMP Visitor Center... More
