I was 16 when Harry Truman died and knew little of his presidency so my reaction to this tour really surprised me. It really is like stepping back in time. The house is preserved with the same furnishings used by President Truman. Our tour guide was so knowledgable not only about the historical facts but personal insights into Truman's character and philosophies. Midway through the tour we were taken upstairs to a viewing room to see a film. Clips showing the Truman family, Harry from infancy to his last visit to Key West in his 80's, and an overview of his terms as president - all creating an understanding of the man. Very well done in my mind and obviously appreciated by older members of our tour group who remembered President Truman and that time in our country's history.
