A new exhibit entitled From Tops to Trains: Toys from the Truman Home will be featured at the Harry S Truman National Historic Site until May 31, 2007. Toys and games have delighted children for centuries. Children use toys for entertainment, to learn new skills or to mimic the adult world around them. Toys also give us social and economic information about previous generations, and the prevailing views about a child’s place in society.

The Harry S Truman NHS preserves three generations of toys and games from the Truman family, a selection of which can now be viewed at the Truman Ticket & Visitor Center, 223 N. Main St., Independence, Missouri. Hours are Monday through Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is no admission fee for the exhibit. Contact 816-254-2720 for more information.
