I find that the tour guide makes a visit worthwhile to any historical site; however, most of them work from a prepared set of information. A very good guide provides the information without making it sound like a script. President Truman was an earthy man and had little interest in using his position, after the presidency, to feather his nest...unlike... More

Our guide was excellent but there wasn't much about Harry Truman I didn't already know. So, basically I found the Summer White House to be little more than rooms full of terribly ugly 1950's furniture. If that is your thing then by all means buy a ticket and go on the tour.

My husband really wanted to see this, so I went along. Wow! Very interesting! I learned so much on this tour about Truman and the events of the times. Other politicians have also spent time here. The stories were rich in history and so very interestingly told. The house has been restored to how it was when Truman spent time... More

Good history of the area and Truman's life as well as the house which is interesting in itself. Slightly difficult to find, but worth a walk from the Audubon house.

The Truman Little White House is in the Truman Annex, a gated subdivision. The tour takes about 30 minutes and includes the living room, the south porch, dining room, and the Truman's bedrooms, his and hers. There were a lot of interesting facts that were included and shared during the tour. Our tour guide, Anne, was absolutely awesome and you... More

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and told us how the Trumans lived while they stayed at this very small (by presidential standards, I imagine) house. Well worth visiting.

I am a real American history buff so I go there every time I am in Key West- but it is interesting for anyone to see how a president relaxes
