  • So very interesting. Friendly knowledge staff. Well stocked store containing additional educational items and souvenirs. So much to see in KC about President Harry Truman
  • Good location if you like American History. Love to visit any and all National Parks.
  • 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!
  • It's odd that you have to go to the visitor center to buy tickets and the go across town to the home for the tour.
