We've visited many National Monuments and Historical Sites but until recently we had missed this one which is very close to our home in western NY. The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site is superb. They do an absolutely outstanding job of engaging both adults and kids in the history of turn of the 20th century Buffalo, NY, the Pan-Am Exposition of 1901, the McKinley assassination, and the presidency of Teddy Roosevelt. And for us, it was all free with our National Parks annual pass. If you have kids, ask about their Junior Ranger program, which isn't well advertised on their web site but is fun and helps the kids focus on history at an age-appropriate level. They run their visits as guided tours with an engaging interpreter and terrific audiovisuals.
