“Undervisited”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We thought this would be a popular spot, but there weren't many people on our tour. Informative, pleasant guide. Well done restoration -- it felt like a family was going to come through the door any time.

“Looks Like Harry Just Left”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

The house is just a short walk from the cruise ship docks. It was one of the best tours we've had in some time. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and told us little known facts about the Truman's that the average person would never find out unless they toured here. You get to see the entire place and it really looks like the Truman's just left. Take some extra time to walk around the grounds after the tour. This is a must stop in Key West.

“Nice overview of Truman's time spent in key west.”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We've been to several former president' s homes, including Eisenhower's in Gettysburg and L.B.J.'s in Texas. The Little White House in Key West is of similar nature. The furnishings are of the same era as the others and are well preserved. The one difference is that you can't take photos in the Little White House and you can at the other two locations. The admission price is comparable to other historic places in Key West. The tour was very informative and included a short video about President Truman in Key West. This venue will probably bore young children and teens. It will be very interesting to anyone of the Baby Boomer generation and earlier.
