Good visit

Good visit to Truman's little White House. Good video on what was explained to us by the tour guide, seemed a little repetitive though.

Our tour guide, George, provided so much interesting historical perspective on our tour. My family and I really enjoyed walking through the rooms where the Truman family (and subsequent presidents) resided while in Key West. Nestled in a beautiful part of the city, the Little White House provides a great opportunity for older folks to remember and younger ones to... More

We enjoyed the history of this house and didn't realize how many presidents used it during summers. One of my son's had just studied about World War II and Harry S. Truman and how he stayed here and what his usual routine day was. It was impressive how he had a shot of bourbon each morning, a walk and then... More

This is an important stop on your Key West visit. Much of the significance might be last on our foreign visits but the story behind this humble adjunct White House is fascinating. great tour and tour guide. Loved the whole experience.

The Little White House was one of my favorites. It gives you a peek into what life was like when Truman was facing his life changing decisions. You can feel his presence, especially around the poker table.

Who knew Harry Truman was a concert pianist - or could have been? Fascinating tidbits about one of the great presidents. It is too bad our current president elect does not share president Truman's characteristics of integrity or respect for the office to which he has been elected.

So glad we did this tour. So much history in this place; our docent was very friendly and informative. The guy in the gift shop, not so friendly, but otherwise I'd recommend this stop to anyone interested in the history of Key West, or history of the US in general.

Having read about Truman beforehand I knew he had a special relationship with the Ket West area, but having seen the house I now know why. The house is fairly good sized and after they renovated it for him when he won re-election, it is a great place to stay. The Navy took good care of the president and what... More
