Guided tours of the Garfield home are our most popular feature, and occur on a timed basis throughout the year. Visitors are guided through the home on staff-led tours, which last approximately 45 minutes. Fees are $10 for visitors 16 years and older; 15 and under are free, along with holders of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Passes (Senior, Annual, Military, Access, Every Kid in a Park). See the back of your pass for details. Passes may be purchased/issued at the park's Visitor Center. The home is wheelchair accessible, and the site has wheelchairs for visitor use as well as a golf cart which staff may use to shuttle visitors with physical difficulties to the Garfield home.
