Mobile/Cell Phone Tours

A mostly yellow sign highlights the NPS app, with a QR code. There is an NPS Arrowhead. Green silhouettes of trees are on the bottom.
The new NPS app can help you plan your visits, and help you learn more about Harry S Truman and his world.


As of October 1, 2022, our cell phone tours were moved onto the new National Park Service app.

Have you tried the new NPS app? It is available for iOS and Android users, and is free!

Once you download the app, you can search for Harry S Truman National Historic Site. Once you're on our page, you can click on "self guided tours."

More features will be added to the NPS app soon. You can use the app to plan your visit to your National Parks!

On the NPS app for Harry S Truman National Historic Site are these self-guided tours:

The Truman Farm takes visitors around the grounds of the family farm in Grandview and discusses the 11 years Truman spent there as a young man.

Around the Corner from the Truman Home gives visitors the chance to see several structures important to Truman throughout his private life and starts at the Truman home in Independence.

The Political Education of Harry Truman starts at the Truman statue on the Independence town square and takes visitors past several buildings that were significant in Truman's early political years.
