You get your ticket and board a bus at the main visitor's center. From there it is a short trip to the beautiful estate. It has been preserved as it was left. There is a guide to give you information when you arrive, as well...More

I loved it. It felt like I was in my grandmother’s house. Took me back to my child hood. Nothing ostentatious about The Eisenhowers. Ike and Mamie lived like middle class Americans, but with a Civil War Battlefield and farm in their back yard.

We visited on a rainy day so couldn't walk the grounds, but the inside of the home was a worth the visit. The house did not seem fancy enough for a president and first lady, but was very homey.

This was so much fun. It was like time stopped that day. The house is beautiful, the farm is well kept even in the rain we had a great time.

My friends had been here before and told me about it. I still didn't expect it to be in view of the Gettysburg battlefields. It's such a peaceful farm. The history and artifacts in the living room were amazing. Lincoln's White House fireplace took us...More

I think they were about $ 7.50 p/p. Can be purchased at the battleground visitor center. There is a shuttle bus from there (no private cars allowed at the farm).

The farm is open year-round, however the hours vary based on the season. The best choice is to check out the official NPS website for Eisenhower NHS; or to call the Site itself or the Gettysburg NMP Visitor Center... More
