History comes to life!

I learned so much about President Truman and his times. Our guide was well informed and friendly. Being in the house made you almost feel his presence.

A little hard to find d but the tour was Great. Nicely air conditioned! Decorated with many of the original furnishings and paint etc that were there when Truman used it as his "Little White House". The tour guide obviously has above affair with "Truman the Human " which was fine because she brought him to life. Heads of state,... More

The tour starts in the main level and ends in the 2nd story. Both sets of stairs have steep rises, so use caution when navigating them.

She presented the information in an unbiased way, and brought up interesting items about the leaders who visited... More

What a great place to visit. Great tour guide, very informative and entertaining. I knew nothing about this place and went along to spend an hour or so there. Was time well spent. A little history, a few jokes, anecdotes. Fascinating. I would highly recommend it. the gift shop is nice too.

The tour of the Truman Whitehouse was very informative. If you are interested in history or even stories of the social structure of the time, this is nice way to take a glimpse into the way it was. Perfectly timed tour and in the comfort of A/C, which can be a welcomed break when vacationing in sunny Key West, FL.... More
