No big sign on the road. No brochures in the box and no details about the telephone tour which is advertised on the pamphlet box. This would appear to be on the pamphlet which was missing. Think of adding this detail.

I thought it was pretty amazing! They left the house just like it was when Mrs. Truman died. His hat and coat are still in the same place he left them when he died. We had a great tour, of just 4 people. Lots of...More

The house was closed but I had read about this great American president. Just by walking along the grounds and reading the posted signage on his life was worth the visit. A great man with the kind of humility that is rarely evident among the...More
