A great piece of history. Worth the time to take the tour and learn about Theodore Roosevelt and why/how he took office.

I had heard stories in the past about the inauguration of TR, but it was great to get the facts. Our tour guide gave us lots of good information, and it was clear he loves Buffalo, the TR inauguration site, and sharing the stories.

The guided tour is brief and informative. There are two compelling videos. Then, you are free to tour the museum and grounds on your own. We learned a lot and left with a renewed interest and respect for TR.

Outstanding guide who was so knowledgeable and accommodating. Never knew about this until checking Things to do in Buffalo on Trip Advisor. Great restoration of the facility, outstanding exhibits and learned things about Teddy none of us ever knew. Really enjoyed this historical treat.

I enjoyed the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural tour. It was a combination of recreated and original news clips and shorts, a very nice Pan Am Expo 1901 exhibit and interactive activities. The docent was very knowledgeable. I would have liked the docent to play a more important role in the entire experience. This is not a criticism of the docent but more of the way the tour is put together. The entire tour took about an hour. It was definitely worth the cost of the ticket. But it can be improved on by giving the docent a larger part in explaining the history of the times, in addition to reading about it.

The tour was conducted by the National Park Staff. There are NOT a lot to visitors to this site. You can walk up and get the tour. If you are a Senior and have the National Park pass the admission is free. You do not need to purchase this in advance. The home is nice and the Park Service has done a good job of telling the story.
