Definitely reccomended
Oct 2021
It was just a great tour. Guide knew his stuff and the tour group was the perfect size - around 10. It was great to see a museum where the artifacts are genuine and not reproductions or artistic impressions - that makes this a very authentic experience. Definitely worth a visit when you are in the keys.

Great way to spend an hour and a half!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Greg M. was a great tour guide - I thought the fact that everything was very close to when Truman had stayed was a great way to feel connected to the story versus everything being behind glass, and it was just the right length for a guided tour.

I would definitely go again next time we're in Key West!

Okay tour but a tad expensive.
Sep 2021
The tour was very brief and the contents of the house were interesting but not enlightening. It was a nice, but fairly long given the heat, walk from Duval St. Given the cost, I would have liked a little more information from the tour guide.

Great 30m tour
Aug 2021
Very cool and only 30m tour which was perfect for what I was looking for. Located close to all the action on the west end of island. If you have any appreciation for history this is definitely worth the quick stop. The decor is Truman era. No pics inside was the only disappointment. I walked up and was able to join the next tour. Tour guide was a young military vet and did a great job.

Neat, But Overpriced
It was neat to be able to step in the house and take a step back in time. The tour was quick. You get to see a few rooms downstairs where the tour guides talks a little bit. You get to walk upstairs by yourself, no tour guide, and come back downstairs where you meet the guide again and they talk for a few more minutes before you exit in the gift shop. You also don’t get to see all the bedrooms, just 2 on the second floor. I would have expected for the price we paid, the tour would have been more informative or we would have got to see more.

Good History of Pres Truman
Sep 2021
The historical account of Truman's life and Presidency were excellent. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. The reason I rated as "Very Good" not "Excellent" was the giant picture from the Biden / Harris campaign and all the related political stuff. We went to learn more about an important period of US history, not for politics.

Wish We Could Encourage You to Visit
Our visit was a bit anticlimactic. Tour guide was engaging and pleasant but 30-minute tour of 5 rooms didn’t cover a whole lot. Being from Truman’s home state of Missouri, we were especially disappointed.

Learned a Lot
I knew very little about President Truman prior to visiting this museum, and left feeling like I learned a lot about his presidency and time spent in Key West. Our guide clearly knew the material inside and out. Tour is relatively brief yet thorough.

Enjoyed tour
Jul 2021
The tour guide was not only informative but funny as well. I enjoyed the tour but was disappointed they didn't allow pictures since the price was fairly high.

Overpriced, but still a nice piece of history.
For your $15 you get a 20-25 min tour of a somewhat sad shack of a house. Not sure what I was expecting, but I was
