This is a nice relaxing visit to a nice, tree shaded "Little White House" used by President Harry Truman. The history is good and informative. A short tour.

The tour was very well done and enough time to understand President Truman and his activities while on vacation-my only regret was no photography inside allowed but they sold postcards in the gift shop.

This property, location and tour is wonderful. Our tour guide was excellent and the house, property, and quick video presentation was memorable. It is one of my all time favorite places to see in Key West. This presidential home is filled with incredible artifacts, photos, and U.S. Navy history. My brother and I thoroughly enjoyed Truman's Little White House. What... More

Anne was a great tour guide. She was knowlegeable and enjoyed the Turman history! She wasn't just repeating a script! She was enthusiastic and able to answer random questions. I am not a big history buff but really enjoyed her presentation!

While visiting from our cruise ship, I booked a tour which included a visit to Truman's Little White House. We really enjoyed the original items on view (especially the poker table, "Buck Stops Here" desk plaque, and record player). The tour guide worked hard - but it was obvious on her first day that more work was required (like what... More
