The house has endured several upgrades and been fixed a lot over the years. It is awesome to come and visit this place... whether you particularly like President Truman, or not! The house is almost ALL original, and the tour is wonderful, insightful and funny. Very cool to see such an intimate side of the President and 1st Lady - and this is a presidency before Dealy plaza; before Vietnam and Watergate. I rank Truman about 12th of the 44; but this historical site is a "must see" in Independence. It is linked with the local jail (1854) where several notorious prisoners were kept and events happened... as well as the NPS site which shows a movie and often has displays from the Truman Presidency in the lobby. As they say in the Midwest: GOOD BEANS!!
