It was like stepping back in time, seeing the little White House. Our tour guide was wonderful - can't remember her name, but she was a retired teacher. We felt like we were getting a history lesson as well as a tour!

Really enjoyed the exhibits, the knowledgable staff and the beauty of the surrounding grounds as well as the impressive building itself. Would recommend this to anyone, young or old. Great stop, great information, and a lot of interactive exhibits.

It is full of things pertaining to our late president, Harry S. Truman. Lots of WWII artifacts and memorabilia. The President is laying in rest in the inner garden. If you admire the Man from MO as much as we do, you will surely find this a treasure of information regarding his life and times.

I visited the library the day before Christmas, it was the second time I had been there, the first time being around 7 years ago. It is such a treasure trove of information, not only about Truman, but the era in which he lived and served as president. You are immersed in his life and times, and by the end, you feel like you know him personally. Absolutely a must see site.

Didn't expect the amount of history at this library. A replica of his White House office as well as historical items from his era. Gravesites as well as memorials. Enjoyed this day. Easy to find.
