“Fascinating Reflection of Truman's Character”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Tour this house to round out your understanding of the post-war period. It was very revealing, simple, and authentic, no excessive shows of wealth and pretension, but a reflection of the President, his straightforwardness, and his small family. I highly recommend a visit, especially if you love history

“I'm from Missouri, I had to go there.”

It was very enlightening. It reinforced that Truman was a regular American citizen. Of course I am biased, but I believe he was one of the most down-to-earth Presidents in recent history and the Little White House displays support that view.

“Very nice”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Very nice White House of the South. The guided tour is very informative. It pays to visit this place when you are in Key West. It is not far from Mallory Square.

“History Lesson”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Our tour was led by Tom, he had a great way of telling the history of the Little White House. The movie shown was very enlightening. You could tell Tom loved what he was doing by the little dance he would do when he got excited about the history he was delivering which made it very enjoyable for us.
