Harry S. Truman Little White House Admission Ticket
This is a favorite of ours. We had a terrific guide (Bob) who is a true historian. He knew the important things to point out and added just the right amount of detail. Thanks for explaining the origins of "the buck stops here!"

My husband and I enjoyed visiting Truman’s White House. The historical stories were interesting, especially since Truman carried out so many executive orders from this quaint and inviting home. I am a great fan of President Truman and found the visit fascinating.

Excellent guide and super easy entrance with the prepaid voucher. There was shaded seating to wait for the tour and water and soft drinks could be purchased in the gift shop. The tour itself was informative and covered a lot of Truman era history that is still relevant today.
