Due to the Santa-Cali-Gon Days Festival (Aug. 29 - Sept. 1) in downtown Independence, parking will be limited around the park visitor center and surrounding neighborhoods. Please plan accordingly. The Truman Home will be open for tours.
Harry S Truman NHS online exhibits feature artifact-supported themes related to the Trumans and their life in Independence and Grandview, Missouri.
Many of the artifacts shown in these exhibits are not normally accessible to the visitor because they are stored on the upper floors of the Truman Home or at our offsite storage facility.
Please click on the titles below to explore the exhibits and learn more about the Truman family and the artifacts preserved at Harry S Truman NHS.
