“Interesting bit of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

The site is significant and the grounds are beautiful. The tour is worth the time and money to see the interior spaces of the home.

“Wonderful visit - a step back in time ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

It felt just like a visit to my grandparents house (albeit with lots more history). The smell, the simplicity, the ease of the '50s - what a wonderful reminder of a fascinating period in American history. Our guide, a former teacher, was excellent. We had a fairly international group, and she catered to each foreign visitor. We liked the stories about other Presidential visits to the property, and the 9-minute video provided an excellent background for my kids to understand the Truman era.

History in the public rooms, house tour was very good. Enjoyed the entire experience. Nice to know that TrumN was so human.

“Neat place to experience history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

It was fun to see and learn about Harry and his many stays in Key West. Didn't know about all of the other presidents (Clinton etc.) who went there.
