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

As visitors we didn't know much about Truman or that period of US history. We took the guided tour and would highly recommend it. Our guide was very clearly spoken and found a good balance between background information and specific detail and anecdotes about the building and artefacts. The house itself has all of the original furniture as the navy... More

The Little White House was huge pleasant surprise on our trip to Key West. It is really beautifully restored, and it captures a very fascinating little piece of U.S. history. Our guide was very friendly and informative, and the tour was really well done. I strongly recommend visiting the Little White House if you are in Key West to visit.

We had a wonderful, very knowledgeable tour guide so that made it so much more interesting than just looking at the furnishings and artifacts. There were no children in our group and I'm not sure it would hold the attention of young kids, but I kept thinking my Dad would have loved to hear about Harry Truman and the presidents... More
