This is one of the most accurate restorations of an old Florida home that I've seen. Our tour guide (George) was well informed and interacts well with the guests. The guide has information on past house usage, and activities conducted by past guests. As a "working" US Government location, used in the last few years for a peace treaty negotiations,... More

This was a great tour and we learned so much about the times and especially Harry Truman. The house is vintage late 40's and 50's with the same furniture the President used.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Truman House. We had a great tour guide through the house. Loved the period furniture and especially the poker table with the cover that made a dining table. The whole neighborhood is delightful to walk around in if you like beautiful grand old homes.

This was our first time in Key West, a beach town rich with history. Taking a break from the revelry on Duval St., we decided to check this out. It was awesome! Our tour guide Jeremy was very informative and knowledgeable. We learned so much on this tour, and the grounds are very nice. Keep in mind there are stairs... More

This was an excellent tour, conducted by a guide who was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about President Truman and his many visits to Key West, and who Provided a real sense of who Truman was as a man. Well worth the visit.

A very informative tour and our President Truman and the Little White House. It's amazing that this place was saved and turned into a historical place. The House is also very well air-conditioned on a very hot day. It does involve climbing stairs and walking.

Our guide was a native of Key West......and sold newspapers during Truman's time spent at the Truman Little White House. Was a wonderful touch when he intertwined his personal experiences during this time during the tour.

This was our second visit to the Truman annex. I must admit the tour guide we had on our first visit was much more animated and knew a lot more interesting tidbits about Harry Truman. That said, I still enjoyed the look back into the past.

This tour surprised me. I visited this site for something to do. It was hot out and we wanted to get out of the sun. This was the best tour we have had in Key West. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. If you are at all interested in our countries history, go!
