For Kids

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.
