“An Outstanding History Lesson on Harry Truman”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is a guided tour through the house that President Truman used as his vacation get a way. The tour guide was a Key West Native who was a little boy when Truman was using it He really made the place come alive with his stories about Truman and his time there. There is also a short film on the Truman and his use of the house. An excellent experience

“great tour guide”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

I loved this museum. The history is interesting both of Truman and the actual house. Ann, our tour guide was amazingly well informed. They were even having a 100th birthday party for Harry Truman that night. What a fun idea!

“Give m hell Harry..my buck stopped here!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Was fortunate to see a well done Florida PBS documentry on this site shortly before our visit. A great time capsule of an era. Does' nt take long to visit. Well worth seeking out. Our guide was in to it. Never know he's probably said the same things countless times. Good job.
