Awesome history that is very well presented by the tour guides. The house is well maintained. Of the few top things to see in key west this is one, at least for history buffs like me. Also see shipwreck historeum, dry tortugas, aquarium (oldest in Florida), Hemingway house, west Martello, and butterfly conservatory. The conch republic biplane ride is fun... More

Took the guided tour of the Little Whitehouse. The tour guide was very informative and made Truman 'come alive' to someone who is not well versed in history. Made me like a guy I hardly knew!

Excellent guide whole knows his stuff and welcomes questions. The tour is informative and well done. The house captures the era! I would highly recommend this venue! Plus it gets you away from the downtown. Parking top.. Westin beside the area where cruise ships come in.

You've got to love a tour that starts with the statement, "Here's where Harry, at his doctor's advice, took a "heart starter" every single morn---a shot of bourbon with an orange juice chaser. Our guide was excellent, and the tour was filled with fascinating information about HST's life and times, and the people in it. If you are an admirer... More

Our tour guide at the Little White House, Chris, was incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining! The property takes the visitor back to the Truman years (1945-1953) and you get to see where President Truman (and other Presidents and military leaders after him) made huge decisions that impacted post--WW2 world affairs. It was great not only to learn about President Truman and... More

Visited the Truman Little White House many times-well worth the admission price-so much history! Seeing the poker table, the pictures of the former president, the videos and the most famous newspaper mistake, "Dewey Beats Truman" on the front page paper, held up by then President-elect Truman is just awesome. Plan to spend at least an hour or two here...well worth... More
