The Harry S. Truman Little White House in Key West, Florida was the winter White House for President Harry S. Truman. This presidential museum also served as a naval base and in turn retained a lot of character and history over the years. Harry S. Truman's desk inside the Truman Little White House
In 1991, the house opened as a state historic site and Florida's only
presidential museum. There are many little details that make this house
unique including the living and dining quarters. Approximately 80-90% of the furnishings are original to the site and give an intimate view of the personal life of the president. The on-going Phase II of the house restoration is designed to make the house interior even closer to its 1949 appearance.


2014 EXHIBITS


The Living Room Series:
"Thanks for the Memories - A Salute to the USO"

January 26 & 27, February 16 & 18, March 9 & 10
Show time: 8PM

Bobby Nesbitt and Carmen Rodriguez return to the living room of the Little White House in their new show which tells the history of the USO and the stars that entertained the troops. From its beginning in 1941 through Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East, the USO and the entertainers known as "soldiers in greasepaint" were always there. Bobby and Carmen will spotlight the WW 2 era and the heyday of the Hollywood Canteen and the Stage Door Canteen when stars like Bob Hope, Betty Grable, Bing Crosby, Dinah Shore and the Andrews Sisters were the headliners. They will also take a look at later years when Marilyn Monroe entertained in Korea and Martha Raye took "Hello Dolly" to Vietnam.

The shows are performed in the intimate setting of Harry and Bess. Truman's living room and bobby will be playing Harry's newly refurbished and rebuilt piano.


Seating is extremely limited and these shows are always sold out so early ticket purchases are strongly recommended.
