Touring the Home
A Stair-Trac device provides wheelchair access to the first floor of the Truman Home. The stair-trac is a portable wheelchair lift that attaches to a park-provided wheelchair. With the touch of a button, it allows park staff to move a visitor in a wheelchair up or down steps at the Truman Home. The Truman Farm Home is wheelchair accessible only on the first floor.

Tour scripts are available for the hearing-impaired and in large-type format. Tour scripts are available in German, Spanish, Japanese and French. Close-captioning and assistive listening devices are available upon request for the audiovisual program at the Visitor Center.

For more information about accessibility options at Harry S Truman NHS, please call (816) 254-2720.
