Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum Tours

Franklin D. Roosevelt may have been the 32nd U.S. president, but he was the first to have a presidential library named in his honor. It was built on his family estate and FDR even provided personal guidance and direction while it was under construction.

Travelers who visit the library and museum will have access to FDR’s own personal records and archives, which include some 16,000 books, 15,000 photographs and plenty of film and audio recordings, too. The library was built in the Dutch colonial style the president loved and is one of just 13 presidential libraries across the country. Scholarly visitors can schedule a stop at the research archives, but even non-academics stand to learn something on a stop at the museum, which includes interactive exhibits and personal effects that belonged to the former president and his family.

Visitors can explore the museum and library on their own, or view it as part of the Hudson Valley New York Great Estates Pass, which includes stops at other top area attractions.
