The tour takes about an hour and was very informative and interesting. A number of presidents have stayed in the vaction home and that made it even more interesting. Nice relaxing tours that take you into history and the importance of the lifestyle of the president at this time. I would recommend this tour if you have never done it.

Very knowledgeable guiding in this beautiful building, which Harry S. Truman used as his summer home, and some other Presidents visited also from time to time. Lots of interesting history to be learned and beautiful building to visit.

We didn't take the tour, but appreciated that it was possible to visit a couple of rooms without paying.

Great place to visit. Presidential vacation home since Truman. Recommend visiting in winter months because of low humidity and crowds. They have a museum for a cost but also have some free exhibits by the gift shop. The grounds are very nice too.

Trumans grandson was there the night before, and toured the home just before our tour. The man who took us on our tour was very interesting to listen to.

This is a lovely building nice to just walk around. In the foyer and adjoining room is an exhibit related to presidents. Right up to date with photos and campaign pins of Clinton and Trump. Didn't take tour though one was available.

One of our wedding group attendees recommended that we take the tour before heading home. I truly knew very little about Harry S. Truman, but felt far more knowledgeable after spending an hour with our tour guide, George. His detailed presentation made us feel as though we had stepped back into the past. Thanks to him, I have a new... More

Good visit to Truman's little White House. Good video on what was explained to us by the tour guide, seemed a little repetitive though.

Our tour guide, George, provided so much interesting historical perspective on our tour. My family and I really enjoyed walking through the rooms where the Truman family (and subsequent presidents) resided while in Key West. Nestled in a beautiful part of the city, the Little White House provides a great opportunity for older folks to remember and younger ones to... More

We enjoyed the history of this house and didn't realize how many presidents used it during summers. One of my son's had just studied about World War II and Harry S. Truman and how he stayed here and what his usual routine day was. It was impressive how he had a shot of bourbon each morning, a walk and then... More
