When one visits a president's family vacation home, an insight into who this man really was takes light. The tour guide was excellent. The tour was not too long and not too short, but very interesting. One should not miss this stop when visiting Key West.

We walked around the grounds that were so pretty and they had benches to sit on and enjoy They have a gift shop inside that you can pick up White House Christmas oraments.There is a little area where you can go and see the display of information and pictures.There is also a tour you can take that you pay for.

I was 16 when Harry Truman died and knew little of his presidency so my reaction to this tour really surprised me. It really is like stepping back in time. The house is preserved with the same furnishings used by President Truman. Our tour guide was so knowledgable not only about the historical facts but personal insights into Truman's character and philosophies. Midway through the tour we were taken upstairs to a viewing room to see a film. Clips showing the Truman family, Harry from infancy to his last visit to Key West in his 80's, and an overview of his terms as president - all creating an understanding of the man. Very well done in my mind and obviously appreciated by older members of our tour group who remembered President Truman and that time in our country's history.

Interesting contract to Truman home in Independence, MO. Much better decorated. Great stories to go with it. Definitely a sight worth seeing.
