If you want to learn more of American history this is the place. Great guided tour, you visit the house where president Truman stayed in Key west. With the original furniture and setting of the house, it is like traveling back in time.

This house has a lot of history. The furniture is original from the 40's and 50's. The docent was very well spoken, information and fun.

I knew very little about Truman from history, of course the big things like dropping the bomb, Potsdam conference, defeating Dewey and so forth, but gained a greater appreciation for this Democrat during the tour of the house and the things he did while he visited. The house is still in active use for state functions and has a secret... More

The guided tour allowed me to learn a bit more about the personal side of Truman. The house is nicely appointed and well preserved. It was really interesting and I highly recommend it.

Short walk from the cruise terminal. Interesting history and photos inside. We walked from cruise terminal to this place and then to Fort Zachary to visit it and the beach. A bit pricey but interesting if your into history.

Well worth the stop. It's a confusing area and a bit difficult to park, so you'll be doing a little walking. A beautiful house with rich stories of presidential visits. Very interesting.

There are many tourist attractions to enjoy in Key West, Florida. Among the most popular are the Ernest Hemingway House and Museum, Sloppy Joe's restaurant/bar and the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum. They aren't to be missed. But how many visitors are aware of the Harry S. Truman Little White House? Located at 111 Front Street, it served as the winter... More
