This place is worth the cost of admission! Was $32 for 2 adults including tax (Dec 2016). Discounts for veterans and Senior Citizens. Local folk take you on a guided tour and provide you with a ton of information on President Truman, his family and other President's who have stayed here in this historical place.

Trumans beach house mirrors his populist, working class persona. Watch out for the steep stairs and the moldy scent.

Arguably the most relevant historical site in Key West. Well preserved, with extensive information for visitors.

Hmm like the Hemingway house, if you are an ardent Truman devotee, I expect this is a must see and an OK thing to do if its raining, otherwise, frankly, not much to see here

There was so much history that I did not know. The guide did a great job and made the place really come to life. A must see. Only about 45 minutes. We'll worth it!

Not having a great knowledge of the history of American presidents, I found the Truman tour very interesting. This tour last about 45 mins, you are not allowed to take pictures but this allows you to hear all the information being given. There are some stairs that some people may find hard to get up and down. This is more... More

We picked up tickets as part of a package so the cost was a bit less. The neighborhood is beautiful and you can hang out free of charge. The price of admission is really for a 45 min or so tour of the little White House where President Truman visited 11 times and spent 175 days. Our tour guide George... More

My husband is an American history buff, and he enjoyed the tour. Our guide, George, had a great sense of humor and a solid knowledge of history. The site did a good job of being historical without being political or partisan.
