Not our top attraction in Key West but worth it if you have the time. Alternatively just pop in and look at the house from the outside and see the couple of free rooms that they have

We visited the Little White House later in the day on our day trip to Key West, but didn't have time to take the tour. The employee working in the gift shop at the entrance was very friendly and knowledgeable. There are 2 rooms by the gift shop that are free to see, and have historic exhibits. A nice stop... More

We enjoyed spending about 1 hour on the guided tour of the house and walking through the free rooms with some displays. The guide was excellent and easily filled up the time teaching us about the property and kept the group engaged. Definitely worth the small fee for the tour.

We enjoyed our visit to the Little White House, a little step back in time. The tour was informative and the furniture was modern and modest for the time period. A life before cell phones and computers LOL

HST wasn't much for pomp and circumstance . The surroundings of reflect a different time and place when a president could go for a walk with a few Secret service men at a distance. The Key West White house was a plain large house not much different from his mother in law's house in Independence, certainly not ostentatious as one... More

Well preserved and reflective of the simple tastes of the "Man from Missouri." Obvious effort to maintain as it was when the President's retreat. Only such facility I know of that was in the middle of a major, very busy (at the time), Naval Base.

Give 'em Hell Harry was truly as American as apple pie....interesting guided tour, but don't touch anything. The sign "The Buck Stops Here" was on display. Well worth the visit...(but not for little kids)...It only takes about an hour for the whole tour

One of the more interesting places in Key West. Great for US history lovers, OK for all others. Don't miss the fancy poker table in the corner of the living room!

The day we visited the air conditioning was out and it was stuffy inside - but they had fans running and I learned a lot more about Truman than I had anticipated. Nice tour.
