Learn About the Park

There are multiple ways to learn about the park! Here are just a few:

  • take a guided tour through President Garfield's home. Learn how the family lived in the 1880's, and the important things accomplished here both during Garfield's lifetime and after his death. Fees apply.
  • look through the Visitor Center exhibits, which offer a chronological view of highlights of Garfield's life. An 18 minute park film rounds out the exhibit information.
  • listen to the cell phone tour and enhance your understanding of the property as a working farm, presidential campaign headquarters, and Victorian country estate.
  • induldge in one of our special amenity tours, which offer a closer look at features like the outbuildings and non-public spaces (Behind the Scenes), artifacts that can be handled (Behind the Ropes), and other experiences which focus on specific themes throughout the park. Fees apply.
  • book an offsite program for your group, inviting our staff into your space to share images and stories on a variety of topics ranging from the Civil War to the Victorian Era and presidents.
  • bring your class to one of our education programs, which align with the Ohio Department of Education's common core standards for social studies. Challenge your students with our math program as well! All field trips include a tour of the Garfield home, and are always free of charge. Fourth graders can receive an Every Kid in a Park pass which admits their families into national park for FREE!
