Truman Little White House, Key West
(4.5/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
A taste of presidential history, Truman Little White House offers guided tours of rooms filled with original furnishings and memorabilia. This house, originally built in 1890 for officers of the local naval base, served as Truman's winter residence for a total of 175 days during about a dozen vacations. Though many of Truman's private possessions still lie scattered about the rooms, he was not the only notable figure to spend time in the house. Thomas Edison lived here during World War I, and presidents John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton used the house for government functions. The interior is open for guided tours only, but you can walk around the surrounding botanical gardens on your own. Put Truman Little White House and other Key West attractions into our Key West trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Taking a tour is the way to go. Costs a few bucks but so much value from the tour guides. I was surprised at how "normal" the house was compared to many ostentatious mansions. A lot of history!

  • Well worth visiting and learning about a great president, and why they call him great. Very valuable tour, easy access for wheelchairs, and well worth your time. House is air conditioned and a great place to visit to escape the heat for a minute in the afternoon. I learned a lot.
  • This place was so cool. Our tour guide was ann and she waa so passionate about this place. We learned so much during this tour. I would recommend this to all ages!
  • Very cool to see a second white House for winter use during Truman. We did the free tour but the guided tour is available and more extensive for $15 and 45 minutes. The free tour is basically two rooms of artifacts and facts.
  • Incedribly informative and a nice view in the life of Truman's Key West goings-on. Tour is a must.
  • Loved it. If you like history check this out.its like stepping back in time. Ash trays and everything.
