Fun learning experience and not too pricey/lengthy

Worth stopping by for the tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and interesting. Entire tour was only about a half hour.

I know very little about Ulysses Grant so we thought we should make a tour or this home in Galena. The home is in itself very authentic and interesting but the senior tour guides were informative and delightful. It is quite small inside and we were there in off season so if you go in the tourist season probably best to go first thing when it opens as you won’t see much of the rooms if you are with a crowd. There is a little room in the cottage out back next to the restrooms that houses a collection of Presidential pets (in miniatures) that is an added plus.

We toured Grant’s home on a sunny Saturday. Beautiful views of Galena from its spot on the hill. Our tour guide, Chuck, was informative and engaging. Well worth the $5 suggested per person donation. Lots of interesting information about Grant and his wife Julia.

Your was very informative. I would consider this a must see if in Galena. Appropriate for children, inexpensive, great history, not too long, great views.

An amazing glimpse into US history. Our Guide said 90% of the home included original and restored pieces. Waited on the porch for 15 minutes but appreciated going through the house with a small group of only 8 people.
