We had an excellent tour guide, pointed out many interesting historical things about the property and things to remember about Pres. Truman and his accomplishments. A must do for baby boomers, a should do for others.

The little white house has a lot of history attached to it. Our guide George did a wonderful job telling us stories while we toured the house. I really enjoyed the visit.

This was a fantastic and interesting place. Very well preserved piece of history. Very close to Mallory Square makes it an easy walk. Give yourself about an hour and a half.

Even if you haven't read Truman by McCullough, this is a fun and interesting place to visit. Our second time visiting...25 years apart. The second time around we'd read the book, and while knowing the subject better, we still had fun the first time.
