When we lived in Key West the Truman White House was on the Naval Base. I thought it might be nice to see it now that it is open to the public. So we walked over from the Shipwreck Museum/Oldest House (there's no parking inside the gates). We had about 45 minutes on the parking meter.

The tour not only cost $10.00 each (way too expensive), but would take more time than we had on the parking meter.

When I read about the tour, I found that the house had been restored to the 40's styles. I can remember the 40s and it doesn't particularly interest me.

There is a free 10 minute video tape extolling all possible virtures of Harry that you can see before the tour. I decided that the video tape was sufficient, and we didn't stay for the tour.

Address: In the Truman Annex -- off of Whitehead Street
