The fee was worth the tour. Tour guide was knowledgeable and informative. He made you imagine what life was like in Key West then.

Cut tour guide was amusing and informative. I knew fairly little about Truman prior to the tour and feel like I gained a decent understanding of the importance of his role in American history.The grounds outside were also beautiful, consisting of many gorgeous, mature trees, which are well marked, and they have a $1 brochure as well.

I had wanted to visit this site as I am a Truman fan - and this site lived up to my expectations. The house is well preserved and furnished with the actual furnishings used by Truman and other presidents. It is a lovely home, and a taste of old Key West. It is also air-conditioned so if you need a break from the heat it is perfect for you. The highlight of our visit was the guided tour. Our guide was excellent - with a great grasp of the history and Truman stories and a knack for making sure everyone could hear. I would definitely recommend this if you love history or just want to see a bit of old Key West.

We found the tour and artifacts very informative and interesting. Putting the facility into historical context, not just with President Truman but with other government dignitaries, was very interesting.

An excellent tour. Our tour guide - Greg M. - was outstanding. Knew how to project so everyone in the group could hear. He has an incredible amount of knowledge about this property and the history behind it and it's obvious he enjoys sharing it with others. As a bonus, at the end of the tour while talking with Greg Truman's grandson was staying on the property and we had the opportunity to meet him - such a nice and down to earth gentleman. Highly recommend.

This was an interesting glimpse into the life of President Truman. The house is very much a family home, and the Truman’s spent much time here. It has also been used by several other Presidents. Visiting is timed, and only with a group and a guide, but our guide had so many anecdotes, that he made the visit all the more interesting. Definitely worth visiting and within easy walking distance of the central town area.

Nice place to visit for history buffs especially for Truman fans. JP was a great tour guide with plenty of knowledge about the White House. A must visit for anyone interested in past Presidents.

Fascinating history brought to life! Our guide Warren was enthusiastic in sharing his passion for 33 as a consequential President. A good window into a President with integrity, humility, and a sense of humor: Remember: “You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog.” And so many more…

It's like you are taken back to the 1940's. The house seems frozen in time, and the story of a special president is well told by the guides. See the iconic images of him and Bacall. The announcement of his loss to Dewey. See his iconic clothes. Learn about the true meaning of "The Buck Stops Here".

We had heard lots about the Hemmingway connection with Key West before we visited but knew nothing about the Truman history so it was fancinating for us to discover that effectively the second White House was here during his presidency. Our tour guide, Anne, was passionate, enthusiastic and really brought the history of the place to life. A must do when in Key West.
