Not having a great knowledge of the history of American presidents, I found the Truman tour very interesting. This tour last about 45 mins, you are not allowed to take pictures but this allows you to hear all the information being given. There are some stairs that some people may find hard to get up and down. This is more... More

We picked up tickets as part of a package so the cost was a bit less. The neighborhood is beautiful and you can hang out free of charge. The price of admission is really for a 45 min or so tour of the little White House where President Truman visited 11 times and spent 175 days. Our tour guide George... More

My husband is an American history buff, and he enjoyed the tour. Our guide, George, had a great sense of humor and a solid knowledge of history. The site did a good job of being historical without being political or partisan.

Great tour! You see the very place and furniture as not only Truman experienced but many other presidents and cabinet members the last 70 years. It's a brief tour. 30 minutes but if you are a history buff you should definitely make the time. There is some really neat things that occurred at this location.

Nearly gave this a miss because you could only go as part of a guided tour, which isn't normally our thing. But the guide was lively and humorous and the tour not too long, just enough to get a flavour of how this came to be Harry Truman's second White House and what happened there during his presidency and afterwards....

Walk around the grounds, come inside, check out the gift shop but don't forgo the guided tour. Excellent. Built in 1890 by U.S. Navy and later used by President Harry S. Truman as retreat and functioning White House. Highlight of our stay in Key West.

Harry S Truman ... our wonderful former president who's remembered fondly for his saying" The Buck Stops Here" enjoyed Florida as a working vacation home as well as other presidents stays... even Thomas Edison for several month! Fascinating having history come alive.....

This attraction surprised us with the amount of details the guide provided, and was far more interesting than I initially thought. As Harry Potter grades go, it “Exceeded Expectations.” Truman spent 175 working days in Key West here, and the life he led, and the surroundings he led them in are fascinating. I won’t spoil the tour for you. The... More
