“Harry, you're interesting...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Very informative and the information is presented in an engaging and easy-to-follow manner. A great activity to take the parents to when it's cold or rainy outside.

“History Lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I would highly recommend visiting this library/museum. The films about Truman were very informative. It was easy to view all the displays and learn a lot about the man and his presidency without being too wordy. Enjoyed it very much.

“This was pretty neat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was not sure how interesting this was going to be. Turned out, it was pretty neat. Lots of information that I never knew about President Truman. Movies, personal artifacts, very interesting. I'm glad we went.

“Great part of our history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

An informative and interesting collection of President Truman's private papers and the challenges he faced as FDR's successor.
Loved the exhibit of his office at the library during his years there. Well done.
