“Harry's Little White House”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Having lived through the Truman years, and having lived long enough to see him recognized as one of America's greatest presidents, I was anxious to see the Truman White House and did so on a tour during our visit to Key West. The home is in amazing condition and well maintained as is the landscaping and gardens. It sits on former Navy property which is now a development of homes, keeping the flair of the original buildings which stood on the site. The tour was very reasonable, guide was exceptionally interesting and knowledgeable, answered all questions and did no try to rush us through. I am cerftainly glad i had a chance to see this famous facility in person.

“Interesting, historical place”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

A real treat to be in the same home as one of my favorite presidents. I learned a lot about him and his family. The home is well-preserved. Worthy of a visit.
