A very interesting tour of the Truman residence led by Bruce W, who combined great knowledge with a good sense of humour. For me, this was the highlight of our visits to the various Key West attractions and gave a fascinating insight into Truman's personality as the political context of the 1940's.

It was not extremely large, but great if you are older and just want a small tour. Lots of good history. Small gift shop, but lots to buy.

The history around the house was fascinating and the neighborhood was fun to explore as well. While we did not take the tour, the free exhibits were interesting to explore and very educational.

You can almost feel Harry S. Truman being there. Our guide was very knowledgeable about President Truman and gave several insights about why he liked Key West so much. Worth a visit.

Well worth the time, short house tour but good guides and interesting history. The location is well within walking distance of the Malory Square area and near other atractions
