“This is a treasure of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We were able to relive historical events, such as being at the desk where Truman fired MacArthur at the Truman White House. The furnishings are 90% correct

1949 preserved. We are Canadian but were amazed about the history of this place - well worth the tour

I was so bored...good for old people not kids. Everything was in pristine condition though...I just wasn't into it.

“A must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We were only planning to stop by on our last day to fill in the time. One of our biggest surprises of the trip. The staff was well educated and shared their knowledge of the site with enthusiasm. A definite must see in my opinion and well worth the time

“Surprisingly quaint little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The Truman Annex area where the Little White House is located is very quiet and charming. The tour of the LWH was short, but interesting and engaging. We didn't know much about Truman nor his time in Key West so we definitely learned something during our visit and tour.
