“Great Pioneer History Exhibits, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

Wonderful stop if you are in Independence. This is the LDS Visitors Center and features several great exhibits about the early settlers in this area. Kid-friendly and yet interesting for adults. Interactive exhibits and neat pioneer reconstructions. This is not the city visitors center where you buy Truman House tickets but is a Historical Pioneer Visitors Center with exhibits. Open M-Sun 9-9, free admission. Great historical stop!

“Make sure you go to the right place”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

There is a visitor's center on Walnut Street, but it is a visitor's center for the Church of Latter Day Saints. Ooops - i learned this the hard way, and was almost converted on the spot. LOL. There is a visitor's center that is located a few blocks away - unfortunately i dont have the address. But this is the visitor's center to buy tickets to see Truman's Home. There is a brief film and some artifacts to see. Also has a small giftshop. Just make sure you are going to the visitor's center you want to see.

Provides information about all the sites and historical locations to see. Independence Square is also fun to visit because of all the shops and restaurants.

“Great overview!”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

You need to pick up tickets here for the Harry Truman home and it is here that you get a short movie introducing showing his rise from humble beginnings and then final return to his hometown. Very informative.
