Change in Park Hours
The Truman Home and Visitor Center are now closed Sundays, Mondays, & all federal holidays. The Truman Farm Home and the Noland Home are closed to the public.
As a young boy, Harry Truman had three main interests: music, reading, and history, all encouraged by his mother, to whom he was very close. He got up at five every morning to practice the piano, which he studied twice a week until he was fifteen.
Truman understood that you never stop learning. Today, children ages 5-12 can participate in our Junior Ranger program. After visiting the site and completing several Truman-related activities, children are sworn in as official Junior Rangers and receive a badge.
You can also become a Web Ranger! Click here for more information.
