  • Interesting short tour. I personally knew very little about President Truman but the look into his private home proved he was most definitely a common man and not one brought up in politics. Our tour guide, Richard, was very knowledgeable and was able to answer each and every question thrown at him. I Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to take a walk into the past. Ps. Richard, sorry I misbehaved and got off the carpet. 😉🤣
  • The house was not open for a tour but the grounds were. The ranger was excellent in his presentation about the history of the house. He also provided allot of information about former president Truman's time spent there.
