Learn about the history that took place in Key West. Many of the decisions that shaped our world after World War II were made in this very building. The house has been refurbished to match what it looked and felt like in the late '40s and early '50s. The guides are excellent and give you a wonderful feel for the history that took place here.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation. Not only do you learn the history of the house but about the life and personality of Truman and his family. Stepping into the house is like a trip back in time. I remembered having the same style furnishings in our home when I was very young. A great tour, don't miss it!

Great tour! We learned so much about the history of Key West as well as President Truman and his time spent in Key West. All the furnishings of the house are original to the house in 1949. Details down to the magazines laying on the coffee table are from the time. Being from Missouri we were very interested in seeing this attraction and we're not disappointed. The 45 minute tour of the house is well worth the time and $16.00 entrance fee but if you have time, walk around the grounds and see some of the other historic buildings in the area.

I was a little reluctant about taking this tour but my wife convinced me and I am glad she did. The guide was excellent. I leaned a lot about how this house was used and the background about Pres. Truman.

Our tour guide, Jimmy was very informative and a good story teller. Only downside was lack of public restrooms which were under renovation. Had to use porta potty. Yuck.
