Harry S Truman National Historic Site is in Independence, MO. This site is to commemorate Harry S Truman, 33rd President of the US.
First you go to the Visitor Center to get tickets to tour the house the Trumans lived in. (Ours were free with our senior passes.) We had time to watch what they call an "orientation film"--what I usually call a video or movie. I guess that works too.
We thought we'd come back later to see the jail next door, but we forgot...
No pictures. What a pain! Not sure why--sometimes they don't like you taking photographs with flash inside museums, but mostly I don't use the flash anyway. (I don't always think about it, and most of the time my camera does okay without it.) My other guess is it's because taking pictures slows down the tours.
We couldn't take pictures inside the house President and Mrs. Truman lived in, but we could go across the street into the Noland house where Harry's cousins lived--and where he was visiting when he first met Bess. (This is where the cake plate came in.) It's not really furnished, but there are some copies of photographs and paintings, and some displays. (I just go to national parks; I don't make the rules.)
