Brilliantly preserved winter white house used by several presidents, from Truman to Obama. You can see the table and chairs on which meetings took place and some momentous decisions were made. Wish they had more photographic record of all presidential visits.

We enjoyed our historical tour given by a very informative and educated guide. There was much my family didn't know about President Truman that we were able to learn at the Little White House. I would recommend to friends and family.

This White House is a small property that was used by Truman, as a tropical getaway. In the grand scheme of things, it's a rather humble small oasis for a busy president. The tour gives you a sense of the property and how Truman conducted his business, but it's nothing earth shattering.

We were very impressed with the tour guides. They were quite knowledgeable and interesting. He was a person who played a major role in history, making very difficult decisions. I highly recommend this tour if you wish to learn a bit more about that time in history.

Very history rich tour and you can see why President Truman loved visiting Key West to get away from Washington D.C.

As a history buff and Truman fan, this tour was fabulous! It was informative and interesting and unique! Our tour guide really cared about doing a good job and clearly loved Truman himself. His story about meeting Truman as a young boy really added to the experience. I highly recommend it!

My husband wanted to see this museum, since he's from Missouri. Although I was less enthusiastic than he was, it really was worth the time. It gave an interesting glimpse of some important moments in our history. We had a foreign group in our tour, so we were a little slower due to time for translation. It would have been... More
