Reviewed January 24, 2014

No one visiting Key West should miss visiting here. Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Tour through the house was just the right length and given by very knowledgeable tour guide. Nice little gift shop strategically located right at the end of the tour.

“Interesting”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I liked this museum more than I expected. The tour guide, Jimmy, was conversational and funny, and you could sense his true appreciation for Truman and his legacy in Key West. Not a long tour, but plenty of interesting history. Worth the stop.

“Excellent tour of Truman's second home”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

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.

“The Little White House”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

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.

“Great little stop!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

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.
