“Surprisingly Excellent!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We visited Ike's birthplace in Denison, Texas and the movie, museum and tour were all excellent. Our guide was very well informed and it was such a joy to see homage paid to a wonderful man. There's a small museum and it brought back memories seeing all the newspaper headlines, the photos of Ike and the "I like IKE" buttons we all wore back in the day. Wonderful place to stop and spend a little time!
