The Truman Little White House is Florida’s only presidential museum. Built in 1890 for the naval commander, it was used for both a retreat and a functioning White House by President Truman for 175 days during his presidency. The furnishings and décor have been meticulously restored to that era. Its legacy was assured by visits from Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Carter, and President and Secretary of State Clinton.
This is a fun and educational tour package that will thrill the entire family.
