Great guided tour of the Little White Hose. It's a time capsule from the 1950s when Truman used Key West as his getaway spot. And parts of the house are still used by presidential families to this day! Nice slice of history.

I expected to see a beautiful, historic home, and we were not disappointed, for this home appears to be exactly as if Truman just walked out the door. Seeing his famous fedora and cane, the placard that read, 'The buck stops her,' and his poker...More

Very nice tour. Informative. Not pretentious--nice place for previous presidents to relax. Maybe recent administrations should take lessons instead of the elaborate junkets.

Lots of fun to see the house that Truman spent so much time at. Very interesting, Jeremy, our tour guide was very entertaining and informed.

This was one of the best tours of our trip. I highly recommend taking the tour. The house is the way the Truman's had furnished it and the docent had some personal stories and background history of the area that was good to know about.

What is the best way to get here from the cruise ship? How far away from the cruise ship port is this attraction? Also, how close is it to the Hemingway house?

Probably about a half-mile from the port. You could walk or take a short cab ride
