“Have to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

We really enjoyed the Little White House Tour. So much history, so many artifacts. They have kept the house very true to the way it was when Harry & Bess visited here. We even had a friend with us who grew up in Independence, MO. (Harry's home town) and she was amazed at how much info she didn't know. Very interesting - must see. And air conditioned!

We agree, the Truman Little White is a must see and so glad you enjoyed your visit with us. We feel very lucky in Key West to have Florida's only presidential museum.

“A Must!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

The little white house is one of the most interesting places in Key West. My husband and I had toured the house a few years ago; however, it was our friends first time to Key West and we had to take them there. Our tour guide was so excited about her job it made the tour even better! It truly is an interesting place even if you are not big on history and museums.

“So Much We Didn't Know”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2011

The Truman Little White House was amazing. It was hard to realize you were in the same room with the same furniture as so many Presidents. Presidents are afforded the right to stay there even when they are out of office. The guides are so informative and have such a passion for what they are showing you. I have never been a real history buff, but I so much enjoyed this house and all of its history!

“A Key West Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

This was one of our highlights to Key West. The house and tour guide were extremely interesting. If you are going to do only one tour while in Key West, this is the one.

“If you love history - this is a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

I never knew that Harry Truman had a beloved home in my favorite Key West, but sure enough he did! I highly recommend this tour. The staff are friendly, and knowledgable and have a sense of humor making the tour both fun and interesting. The walk down the Truman Annex on the way to the Little White House is stunning as well, the street is lined by GORGEOUS homes. We really enjoyed this visit.
