I highly recommend touring the Truman Little White House. The guides are very well versed in the Truman years and provided many insights into the President and his family. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and I think you will, too.

If you're a history buff, the Little White House and its museum provide fascinating information. Visitors can really see the appeal of this location for presidential vacations and appreciate the history made here.
In addition to the LWH, the walk over to it from Mallory Square is just beautiful. Cozy streets, gian vegetation, beautiful homes - one could dream of living in the area and enjoying Key West to the fullest.

We visited Harry Truman’s Little White House not really knowing what to expect. It was surprising how close a walk it is from the main area in the town, hidden by a few tree’s just a few hundred metres off the main road and then suddenly there it is in all its glory. A very nice building and worth a look around if you have time during your visit. The guides provide quite a bit of insight into the time it was used and there is some nice furniture and pictures on show. You will get a good feel of why Harry Truman used to come down here and enjoy himself.

Be sure to visit the shop afterwards to get your little bit of memorabilia. It has been preserved well and is still in use if the President wants to visit. If you look around in the shop, you will no doubt see a Picture of current President, Barack Obama from a stop he made. Interestingly there is also a very small Truman Beach at the back which he used a couple of times and was known for swimming out to sea – to the displeasure of his secret service team who would have to stay in the water and follow him…. A nice piece of Presidential history in the South. Hope you enjoy it.
