Not a big history buff but certainly have a greater appreciation for President Truman. Nice to learn that some presidents are unwavering in their values. House was cool and our guide, Rebecca was outstanding! Definitely worth a visit.

Our tour guide was Jimmy who actually told a story about meeting Harry Truman. My hope is that it was true, but even if it wasn't it was entertaining.

I just finished the McCullough biography on Truman, so visiting the Little White House was a real treat! Nice, detailed tour and the house has much of the old furniture. Worth a visit.

Worth the stroll if only to see the lavish gardens. Beautiful grounds and the house is a novelty--we didn't go in, but the outside is nice

This is another must see in the area. The tour guide is so knowledgeable and they take their time. It's amazing how much you can learn about a president and period in history from just one house. I have a new respect for Truman. The grounds are nice too, so make sure you walk around. My advice is that this... More

President Truman spent 175 days in Key West, and visiting the "Little White House," inside what had once been Navy property, you can see what drew him there.
