Didn't go on the tour, but there's plenty to see anyway.

Just stick to the free parts - it's plenty good to see that and the grounds. Gives you a good feel for what things were like in the early part of the 20th century.

Access to the Little White House is only by a docent led tour which takes about 45 minutes. While waiting for your tour, you can visit a small museum and watch a short film about Truman’s presidency. Most of the furnishings are those used by Truman when he visited during his presidency. Our docent made the tour interesting with short... More

When President Truman was feeling the ill effects of his office, he was urged to go somewhere for peace and quiet, and he came here, to Key West. The location and setting of his get away is still very relaxing. The building sags a little, uneven floors, showing its age, but a few areas are still inviting today, like the... More

This is one of the most accurate restorations of an old Florida home that I've seen. Our tour guide (George) was well informed and interacts well with the guests. The guide has information on past house usage, and activities conducted by past guests. As a "working" US Government location, used in the last few years for a peace treaty negotiations,... More

This was a great tour and we learned so much about the times and especially Harry Truman. The house is vintage late 40's and 50's with the same furniture the President used.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Truman House. We had a great tour guide through the house. Loved the period furniture and especially the poker table with the cover that made a dining table. The whole neighborhood is delightful to walk around in if you like beautiful grand old homes.

This was our first time in Key West, a beach town rich with history. Taking a break from the revelry on Duval St., we decided to check this out. It was awesome! Our tour guide Jeremy was very informative and knowledgeable. We learned so much on this tour, and the grounds are very nice. Keep in mind there are stairs... More

This was an excellent tour, conducted by a guide who was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about President Truman and his many visits to Key West, and who Provided a real sense of who Truman was as a man. Well worth the visit.
