  • Get information on many things to see in Independence, MO. The home of President Harry S Truman.
  • Plenty of information and Truman related stuff, good and central in the 'Truman' district. Make it your first stop if you're trailing Truman!
  • I'm concerned that Ms. Prewitt has reviewed Truman's Farm, not Truman's home and historical site. First, to get tickets, you have to go downtown to the National Park Service building where you can watch a movie and see a smattering of artifacts, and buy memorabilia. If you have children, they can be sworn into service as Junior Rangers by the Park Ranger on duty. We saw several swearing-ins and they were very moving. You then drive to your tour of the Truman House a few minutes away. The tour guide takes a group of no more than ten people through the house which was left exactly as it was the day Bess Truman died. It is fascinating, awe-inspiring, educational, and not to be missed!
  • A good spot to start if visiting Independence, or want to know more about sites around the area about Harry Truman.
  • I just went through the 360 camera self tour on the photos and it looks so amazing!
