This was a fantastic and interesting place. Very well preserved piece of history. Very close to Mallory Square makes it an easy walk. Give yourself about an hour and a half.

Fascinating! Very well done and worth the time. I expected a tiny little house all by itself; the house is substantial, but the grounds cover several acres. The docents are very knowledgeable and keep things moving with lots of humorous anecdotes.

Even if you haven't read Truman by McCullough, this is a fun and interesting place to visit. Our second time visiting...25 years apart. The second time around we'd read the book, and while knowing the subject better, we still had fun the first time.

Not much to see here. I guess it was interesting seeing the history of it. But outside of looking at a few pictures there's not much to see or do.

The guide George was very knowledgeable and showed the different rooms where Harry Truman and his wife lived. He recommended to my a book that was interesting: "The General vs. the President: MacArthur and Truman" by H. W. Brands. The guide James is also knowledgeable.
