Visitors to Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace can:
- View an introductory film on the early life of Theodore Roosevelt. This 25 minute film encapsulates the physical and emotional struggles that young 'Teedie' endured while growing up in a priviledged Victorian-Era New York home. It provides an excellent foundation for visitors planning to visit the period rooms.
- Visit the exhibit galleries which contain a wealth of artifacts and memorabilia from throughout Theodore Roosevelt's life, such as, examples of his childhood taxidermy specimens, his Rough Rider uniform, and the bullet-pierced eyeglass case which helped save his life during an assassination attempt.
