This was the first time visiting Key West & this was arguably the best attraction that wasn’t a licensed premise, lol. Our tour guide Greg M. was personable and knowledgeable throughout the entire walkthrough of the home. He also had a warm sense of humor! There was so much that I didn’t know about Truman personally, and Greg connected the dots during the tour about Harry’s life while (Truman) stayed here. Fascinating to hear the stories about the bar & poker table that are inside. Each room on the tour came with its own story.They do not let you take pictures inside, but you can purchase postcards for $0.75 each at their gift shop. The air conditioning inside was a welcome relief on a warm day.If you get the chance to see this attraction I highly recommend it. You can also see Truman’s Presidential limo (1950 Lincoln) which they keep on site for much of the day.

Our tour guide,Rick, was quite knowledgeable and entertaining. He shared interesting tidbits about historical events that took place during Trumans presidency. He was willing to answer questions and provide additional information. The house itself is furnished with original pieces along with black and white television, Life magazines and national newspapers. The house is available to US Presidents and or family members even today. The tour is well worth your time.

It was just a great tour. Guide knew his stuff and the tour group was the perfect size - around 10. It was great to see a museum where the artifacts are genuine and not reproductions or artistic impressions - that makes this a very authentic experience. Definitely worth a visit when you are in the keys.

We took this wonderful informative interesting tour and loved it. All the employees there were amazing. It s a beautiful property to walk through even if you don’t take the inside tour.

Greg M. was a great tour guide - I thought the fact that everything was very close to when Truman had stayed was a great way to feel connected to the story versus everything being behind glass, and it was just the right length for a guided tour.I would definitely go again next time we're in Key West!

Very cool and only 30m tour which was perfect for what I was looking for. Located close to all the action on the west end of island. If you have any appreciation for history this is definitely worth the quick stop. The decor is Truman era. No pics inside was the only disappointment. I walked up and was able to join the next tour. Tour guide was a young military vet and did a great job.

This was a highlight of our trip. I didn't know much about Truman and Randi was a SUPERB tour guide! I learned so much about Truman and the property itself! I would highly recommend making this a stop on your trip agenda!

I thought this was such a cool tour. Our tour guide JP was well rehearsed and did a great job explaining each aspect of the tour. Walking into the house, it is like going back in time, and I could totally appreciate that. I thought just seeing the furniture and decor was super cool. Going room to room, the stories that were told were really interesting. I especially liked the poker table anecdote. I love history and enjoyed this tour very much. The price is a bit steep but I am all for preserving this museum so it was okay.

Excellent guide and super easy entrance with the prepaid voucher. There was shaded seating to wait for the tour and water and soft drinks could be purchased in the gift shop. The tour itself was informative and covered a lot of Truman era history that is still relevant today.

My wife and I visited the Truman Little White House on our visit to Key West. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. One note that they do not allow photographs inside the house for security reasons (current and former presidents are still allowed to use the house). Pictures outside of the house are allowed. The guided tour through the house was very informative and enjoyable. It was fascinating to learn more about Truman and about his time in Key West. He basically ran the country from Key West during the time he spent there. I highly recommend the Truman Little White House especially if you like history.
