Fees & Passes
It might have meant something different to President Truman, but you can be assured that your Buck Stops Here at Harry S Truman National Historic Site. Your fees for tours of the Truman Home help us accomplish things that would otherwise be possible. Thank you.
Your Fees Benefit the Park!
The fees you pay when visiting Harry S Truman NHS make a difference! We participate in the Congressionally-authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, parks keep 80% of all fees collected (except for the Annual and Lifetime Senior Passes) and use that money to fund important projects that improve visitor services and protect resources.
Tour Fee: $7.00 (effective January 1, 2018) for those 16 and over, children 15 and under are free. Admission to the Truman Home is by ticketed, guided tour only. Each tour is limited to 8 people. Tickets are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and must be purchased at the Visitor Center on the day of the tour. Tickets may sell out by early afternoon on weekends, around holidays, and daily during the summer season. Tour time availability is dependent on staffing levels.
Please note that other than for bona fide educational groups, advance reservations for groups cannot be accepted. Tickets for the Truman Home tours are first come, first served, for all. Please see page 22 of the park's Superintendent's Compendium.
Grounds are open year-round for free self-guided tours. Audio tours available. Farmhouse is currently not open for tours.
