Lonely Planet review

See the simple life Harry and Bess lived in this basic but charming wood house. It is furnished with their original belongings and you fully expect the couple to wander out and say hello. Truman lived here from 1919 to 1972 and in retirement entertained visiting dignitaries in his strictly pedestrian front room – he's said to have hoped none of the callers would linger more than 30 minutes.

Tour tickets are sold at the visitor center . Ask for directions to the Truman Family Farm , where the future president 'got his common sense.'
