About these ratings

The Little White House was originally built in 1890 as command headquarters during the Spanish-American War. In 1946, President Harry Truman used this house as his winter vacation home; because he spent so many working vacations here, it became known as the Little White House. The name is fitting: Since Truman's days, many other presidents have also vacationed here. Today, the Little White House has been restored and turned into a museum. Exhibits document Key West's role in naval conflicts, as well as the house's history -- the Marshall Plan and Truman Doctrine were both discussed here.

Guided house tours are included in the modest admission price. The tours last around 45 minutes and start every 15 minutes.
