Neat, But Overpriced
It was neat to be able to step in the house and take a step back in time. The tour was quick. You get to see a few rooms downstairs where the tour guides talks a little bit. You get to walk upstairs by yourself, no tour guide, and come back downstairs where you meet the guide again and they talk for a few more minutes before you exit in the gift shop. You also don’t get to see all the bedrooms, just 2 on the second floor. I would have expected for the price we paid, the tour would have been more informative or we would have got to see more.

Good History of Pres Truman
Sep 2021
The historical account of Truman's life and Presidency were excellent. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. The reason I rated as "Very Good" not "Excellent" was the giant picture from the Biden / Harris campaign and all the related political stuff. We went to learn more about an important period of US history, not for politics.

History for All

I did not realize the historical and strategic significance of the island. About Harry Truman but in the context of the period.

Wish We Could Encourage You to Visit
Our visit was a bit anticlimactic. Tour guide was engaging and pleasant but 30-minute tour of 5 rooms didn’t cover a whole lot. Being from Truman’s home state of Missouri, we were especially disappointed.

Learned a Lot
I knew very little about President Truman prior to visiting this museum, and left feeling like I learned a lot about his presidency and time spent in Key West. Our guide clearly knew the material inside and out. Tour is relatively brief yet thorough.

Enjoyable place to visit!

The house has had a very interesting history, and it was lovely to see how many of the original furnishings remain. We really enjoyed the history lessons and the amusing Truman anecdotes!

Overpriced, but still a nice piece of history.
Jul 2021
For your $15 you get a 20-25 min tour of a somewhat sad shack of a house. Not sure what I was expecting, but I was certainly expecting something better appointed than my great aunt's living room. Still, learned some things I didn't know, so there is some value there. Would be nice if they allowed photos inside the building. Do be sure to walk around the Truman Annex beyond the White House - it has some of the most beautiful homes in Key West.

Enjoyed tour
Jul 2021
The tour guide was not only informative but funny as well. I enjoyed the tour but was disappointed they didn't allow pictures since the price was fairly high.
