“A Must See in Key West”
Reviewed 15 April 2009

This was the best stop on our Trip. The tour provides you a great insight into this President's life and values. He refused air conditioning because it cost too much ( A huge change from today's Politcians). The tour guides provide a great insight into the man and the events in various rooms of the sprawling home.

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed 24 February 2009

This was more interesting than my wife had I expected. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining which really helped make it worth while. It's a 45 minute tour which takes you back in time.

“A nice place to visit”
Reviewed 15 February 2009

We enjoyed our visit to the Truman White House. He was President before my time, and I enjoyed learning about his life. If you are early for a tour, there is a room with some information and photos. But the best part was the guided tour - our guide gave us a lot of great tidbits, as we wandered through the house.

“A neat thing to see”
Reviewed 26 June 2008

This was a neat attraction - unfortunately for us, the AC was broken when we were there, so it was a bit miserable. Definitely take the guided tour - you will learn a lot about Truman and the history of the house. The only thing I really disliked is that you can't take any pictures inside.
