  • Tour guide was very pleasant and it had an interesting back story of the president home and life. Beautiful home with landscape, the arts is amazing to see. It's unfortunate how life's were lost on...

  • It is hard to imagine a collection of less inspired guides than at this museum. The history of the house is what makes the museum (mildly) interesting.

  • The museum has so many paintings and art from many local artists. It was interesting how we had to remove our shoes to get in, at least the time we went there, so it would be nice to go there with socks. It's 1500, to visit the museum and 10k to visit both the museum and the plane crush site ( my opinion it's not worth it) The time we visited there was no kids activity but there's a room for kids to color, paint which is good. It will be great to call in advance if you want to take your kids there. My kids enjoyed running outside. It is also a good venue for weddings, and there was a tennis court.
  • It is a nice place to visit. Territory is quite big as it is an old house of the ex president. The airplane peace's are right near his house where the crash took place. Incide the museum there are two floors with several paintings in each room. Grade around is really nice.
