It's a cool little place, even though it wasn't very big in Ike's life. My tour guide was great! Definitely worth a visit if your in the area.

The Eisenhower Birthplace State Historical Site is the actual birthplace home of Ike, which is the main benefit of this attraction. Many birthplace sites are just replicas or neighbor's houses, but this home is the actual birthplace. There is also a small but nice gift shop as well as a great statue of Ike. However, the information and tour itself just isn't that interesting. Since Ike moved to Kansas before he was two years old, the information here covers the lives of his parents and older siblings more than it does him. This information just isn't that interesting.

Nice historical site, the birthplace looks like it has been restored to period appearance.. Lot's of photo's and history info to view at visitor's center without admission charge.
