Right off the bat, this place is not original. The original was knocked down (hey, it's New York), but this rebuild was done very shortly afterwards, headed up by Teddy's sister, who had been born in the original house, so it's extremely authentic.
Next - the price is right - FREE! What else can you get for free in New York City?
Third, Teddy Roosevelt was an amazing human being, and the displays in the house help to show this. The park ranger leading the tour was extremely knowledgeable and interesting, making the tour fly by in what seemed like no time at all. Few things in life are better than an interesting National Park Ranger, and this guy had it.
On the day I went (a Saturday afternoon in May), I was the second person to sign up for the tour, only about ten minutes before it began. I'm not sure if the tours fill up faster than that at other times.
