Thanks to the excellent tour guide, the history of the house and Pres. Truman's visits were made fresh and vivid. There is quite a bit of history to learn or, for older visitors,to recollect. The tour is well worth taking.

Our guide was a petite lady who knew an unbelieveable amount about the history of the house and President Truman. She engaged my children, 11, 13, and 15, in conversations about history, and made the tour interesting for them. It was obvious she loves what she does and the history contained in the Little White House. We enjoyed our visit... More

Very informative guide, unfortunately there were too many people on the tour....I enjoyed the history lesson but could hardly see the decor as the rooms were too full of people.

I had no idea the Little White House existed until we visited Key West. Tour guides are exceptional, and very knowledgeable about Truman and that period of our history.

A great peak into Truman's life in the Keys and his accomplishments as president. His humility and attention to duty are touching

I was unaware that the naval base at Key West served as the "Little White House" for President Truman. The facility provides daily tours at reasonable intervals. The home has been beautifully maintained and preserved. The guide "Bill" did an excellent job of describing the role that the facility played before, during and after President Truman's time in office. Besides... More

While this little gem is a nice thing to say you've seen, it's not filled with anything earth shatteringly great that you would feel you missed something not going. I've been to KW many times and never made it to this place until this trip. Great guide, but overall a yawner of a time.

Set within a neighborhood known as the Truman Annex, the HTWH along with the gardens is a worthwhile educational and cultural endeavor. Give yourself plenty of time to wander.

We visited the Little White House, almost as an afterthought, but boy, was it great. If you have any interest in post-WWII history, this worth the drive to Key West. One could almost sense Harry Truman sitting at his desk or in other parts of the house. If you do nothing else when you visit Key West, take the tour.... More
