Fees & Passes

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 and use that money to fund important projects that improve visitor services and protect resources.

Truman Home
Tour Fee: $5.00, children 15 and under are free. Admission to the Truman Home is by 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.

Annual or Lifetime Passes are possible alternatives to the above fees.
