If you are a history buff, this is not to be missed.
A guided tour of the Little White House will either educate you or fill in some of the blanks on some of the Presidents and historical events of the time.
A peek into Harry Truman relationship with the press and residents of Key West
End of WWII
Quarantine (blockade) of Soviet ships to Cuba

Definitely worth it if you like this kind of thing.
A big plus, its' air conditioned unlike some of the other famous places (Hemmingway House. There, I said it!)
The gift shop has some pretty cool items too.

“History”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We loved the tour guide. Typical Key West attitude, but more information than I ever expected. Stroll the grounds and enjoy the gift shop also.
