This is a great museum about a great man. A wonderful depiction of his life from beginning to end. I particularly enjoyed the replica of the oval office as well as his actual working office in the library.

We knew it was going to be good, but I would put this up as more of a "great" opportunity to understand the man and his challenges. This was a great opportunity to learn more about the total person than just the world war II version. His whole career was one we could only hope to replicate someday in our leaders. Not only was the museum fascinating, the modesty of the entire surroundings reflects the nature of the individual.

A bit out of the way, but a wonderful facility full of history during the end of WW II and the onset of the Cold War. Great murals, pictures and artifacts. Well worth the visit.

This library and museum are excellent sources of information on Harry Truman. Learned a lot about him that I did not know.

Extremely well done. The library is a great educational experience. In times as tumultuous as these it is good to be reminded that there have been other times equally as challenging. A great tribute to a great man.
