The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site is a premier destination for regional, national, and international visitors. As a center that brings the history of Theodore Roosevelt’s inauguration and enduring legacy to life, the site is a place to learn, exchange ideas, and engage in civic discourse. Visitors understand the essence of the issues faced by Theodore Roosevelt and how these issues remain relevant today. Interpretive themes include immigration and urban poverty, race and social equality, environmental conservation, big business and labor, and the role of the U.S. in global affairs.
The site is open seven days a week, offering tours for walk-in visitors and scheduled groups—schools, scouts, seniors, organizations offering after-school programs, and tourist groups. Our visitor experience, heralded by representatives of the National Endowment for the Humanities as “groundbreaking,” introduces multi-media and interactive components that bring the site’s tour to life. And our Exemplary Citizenship Initiative provides opportunities for visitors and the community at-large to explore issues of the day through existing and newly created programming.
