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

If you are a history buff you have to visit this site. If you are a Truman fan then definitely visit. It is kept exactly as it was when President Truman was in office - tour guide was informative. Wish we had politicians like Harry now ! You can even see his desk with "the buck stops here" motto!

This was our favorite tour in Key West. It offers a fascinating look at a time when the President could travel, vacation and work in a casual, safe atmosphere with little worry about safety. Excellent guides walk through the "second Whitehouse" of the Truman years. If you can only have time for one tour (about 2 hours) this is the... More

We have been to Key West several times and never went to the Little White House. There is so much history in that little building. Bill, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and helpful along the tour. We had someone that was unable to traverse the stairs, but he included them in the tour as much as physically possible. I...

Took a 45 min. guided tour. OK but not as interesting as the Hemingway House or the Coast Guard Cutter Ingham.
