Create an itinerary including Truman Little White House
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.

  • If you're a history buff you'll enjoy visiting the Truman Little White House. Our tour guide Rick was fantastic. He had great knowledge of President Truman's personal life, the house/property as well as numerous historical facts to share. My wife and I are glad we stopped by to see this place while vacationing in Key West.
  • If visiting Key West, the Truman Little White House is a great place to visit. Well done guided tour, or if your time is limited, there are some free exhibits. I was fascinated by the history of the place and how many significant events happened right here in Key West! There’s a small gift shop that was fun to look around in.
