  • A very important piece of American history. The rangers are great, and the home is well-maintained. The tour itself is pretty short, because it is just the ground level. The site extends across the street to the Noland home, so make sure you stop in there. You MUST buy your tour tickets down the road a bit on the square, at the visitors center, before you arrive at the Truman home.
  • Nice very nice , sane goes for alot of tge other homes in the area. Old but very beautiful.
  • One of my favorite presidential homes to visit. Everything was left just as it was the day Bess Truman passed. I wished we were allowed to take photos inside :-(
  • Very authentic. Very enjoyable.
  • Have been here twice with friends and family from out-of-town. It is great to get new information with every visit and different guides.
