The house is maintained by the State of Illinois so it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. They ask for a $3 donation...I think it's a very good deal.
The Grant home tour is one of the must see attractions in Galena! It is picturesque amongst the hilly historic streets and homes.

Small museum is located next to home outlining important dates and accomplishments, very interesting.
