Plan Your Visit

Begin your visit to First Ladies National Historic Site with an orientation in the Education and Research Center (ERC), located in the 1895 City National Bank Building.

Explore exhibits located on the first floor of the ERC or watch a movie in the 91-seat Victorian theatre located in the building's lower level.

The site's research library occupies much of the remaining ERC space and is available by scheduled arrangement only.

Continue your visit by joining a docent for a tour of Ida Saxton McKinley's restored Victorian home. Reservations are recommended for large groups or school groups. The last tour begins at 3 p.m. To make a reservation, call 440-717-3753 or email
