'COVID ERA' TIP:  House tours sell out first and sometimes more than two weeks ahead.  The FDR Museum follows a different protocol and only releases tickets 7-10 days ahead of time. However, we (at Roosevelt Inn) have usually been able to get Museum tickets online at the last minute.  (No tickets are sold at the historic sites.)
