Tours through the President's Homestead are available at 10:30, 11:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30. There is no admission charge, but visitors must obtain tickets for a tour at the Visitor Center no later than 15 minutes prior to the tour. Tour sizes are limited to 12. Tours begin on the back porch of the Homestead, and visitors may either walk or drive to the house. Parking is available.

Be aware that in the Fall and Spring, group tours may be going through the Homestead. Any tour full with scheduled groups will preclude the regular tour schedule. Any groups larger than 12 should call the Visitor Center at 423-638-3551 to make reservations in advance.

During the summer months, tours of the home may be suspended due to dangerous interior heat indexes. The park may be closed for inclement weather during the winter. Call the Visitor Center prior to your visit at 423-638-3551 to check conditions if there is doubt.

The home is open for tours daily with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
