History, go see it.

History, just a simple home where Truman grew up. Go see it. I do not remember how much it was to get in.

No big sign on the road. No brochures in the box and no details about the telephone tour which is advertised on the pamphlet box. This would appear to be on the pamphlet which was missing. Think of adding this detail.

Spent 10 minutes walking around. No brochures,nobody here on a July Saturday afternoon. Yep - looks like a farmhouse. Well kept, and two signs out front with a little information. I suppose farm life was plain, simple, hot and boring. Much like standing out front, looking at a locked up farm house. In Grandview, Missouri. Reflecting on his years here,... More

There is a lot of history around this little farm house tucked away on the last 10 acres of the original Truman farm. When you get there, do not expect to go into the house, it is not open for tours, and there are no restrooms. You can dial the number on the brochure and get a cell-phone based guided... More

The Truman farmhouse is there on the original site of the family farm. However, it is not open to the public. The only things you will see are two informative signs and a locked white old farmhouse with closed blinds. You can't even look in. We were disappointed. We did travel on the the Truman Library which was very informative.

Interesting farm house and few outbuildings have been preserved and are in good condition. Unfortunately, tours of the farmhouse are only available in the warmer parts of the year, not in the winter. There is an audio tour available for a cell phone, but it did not work very well as it did not respond to the numbers of the... More

Had a good time visit Truman's house and also where Truman had his first job also go into the visitors center and watch a video for free before you take the tour of Truman's house when you come out of the visitor center and you can also take a horse ride on a wagon

There is not much here because the home is closed. I really enjoyed the cell phone tour. It has all the great info a guide would give you. My kids were bored, but they ran around the buildings in the grass and there were a few wild strawberries. It is interesting for adults who like history.

I thought it was pretty amazing! They left the house just like it was when Mrs. Truman died. His hat and coat are still in the same place he left them when he died. We had a great tour, of just 4 people. Lots of history in that house.

The house was closed but I had read about this great American president. Just by walking along the grounds and reading the posted signage on his life was worth the visit. A great man with the kind of humility that is rarely evident among the leaders of today.
