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.

Truman Little White House reviews
The info discussed on the tour is nice, but on several portions we were just told to go on ahead, so we didn't have opportunities to ask or learn. The price is a bit steep for the brief tour IMO. more »
I visited the Little White House by myself because I am a history buff. Tours are given on the hour. My guide was very informative and entertaining. The house has been carefully restored to its 1949..... more »
Really enjoyed this very interesting. Full of history and very good guide. Has lots to see that was used by President Truman and others after. Well worth a visit. Recommend to go there if you're in the keys
We took the tour of this place and it was pretty interesting. It's also very pretty. Especially the grounds. I don't even like guided tours normally but learning about this place was really interesting! I would highly recommend!
