Details

Experience the Roosevelt presidency, from the Great Depression through the New Deal years and World War II, emphasizing Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s relationship with the American people. Special interactives, immersive audio-visual theaters, and rarely seen artifacts bring a New Deal to a New Generation.

State-of-the-art exhibits tell of FDR's heroic struggle to regain his strength and political career after polio. Tactile exhibits enhance the experience for visitors with impaired vision. A new bilingual audio tour brings the Roosevelts’ story to more guests.

While you're on site, be sure to allow time to visit the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site.

The Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Vanderbilt Mansion will close for two weeks from Jan. 1-14, 2023, and re-open on January 15. The grounds will remain open every day. The FDR Library and Museum will remain open as well.
