We didn't know what to expect coming from the UK to what we'd see there. However, the house really well preserved with most of the original features of 1940/50 life along with a great historical story. Greg M a great tour guide a well spent hour.

We loved this tour. Harry S. Truman used this house for 175 days in the winter. It is located right off the cruise port and is very walkable to get to. It is the only Presidential museum in Florida. It was $22.95 for an adult ticket. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the stories he told were so interesting. The round table on the first floor that doubled as a poker table and dining table was a hoot. Boy the people who have sat at that table... The restoration and attention to detail was wonderful. You can't take pictures in the house but there is a gift shop and in the back there are exhibits and photos you can take pictures of. Would highly recommend if you are in Key West.

Enjoyable tour. Tour guide very friendly & knowledgeable. Open to questions from group. Tour not super long. Probably not for children under 12.

We have always wanted to do this tour and so glad we finally did! Our tour guide Larry was very informative and brought the life of Truman’s time in Key West alive. It was fascinating to learn of what a humble and proud man he was from his midwestern roots in Missouri and how he carried that over with decisions governing our nation to be in the ranking of 6th greatest Presidents in the US. The timeline historical info was well appreciated and it is a tour very worth the time to take!

We took the guided tour of the Harry S Truman Little White House. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the place come alive, leading us to picture in our minds the events that took place there. I know just enough history to have found it fascinating, and this was my favorite part of our trip to Key West.

Having visited the Truman Library & Museum last year in Independence, MO, we were thrilled with our guided tour of Harry S. Truma Little Whitehouse. Our docent, Mary, gave an excellent tour of the house and truly educated us on Harry Truman as President and a person. A lot of history and a lot to learn about Truman, his presidency once Roosevelt dies, and the challenges he faced as President. The house is beautifully decorated with many items matching its rich history under Harry Truman. We have an even better appreciation of Harry Truman, as a man and President. He faced MANY challenges basically head on during his Presidency. His decisions made a significant impact on the direction of the United States.
