The information gained from the tour was excellent! The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. We went early in the morning and there was only 1 other person in our tour - very personal. We had no idea President Truman accomplished so much.

One of the many attractions we viewed while in the town. We did not enter the building. We only viewed it while on our walk.

This is a great, 45 minute guided tour through the simple living where Truman (and others) have vacationed on Key West. It is a good look into how life was in the 1950s era. We had a great tour guide - Mark! He was enthusiastic about Key West and leading the tours; and he was knowledgeable about Truman and the... More

We loved the history surrounding this museum. The tour guide was full of information and very entertaining. The original pieces were great to see. The Truman Annex where the house is located is very historical and worth walking around the neighborhood.

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
