This is a contributing entry for Harry S. Truman Presidential Library & Museum and only appears as part of that tour.Learn More.

This exhibit includes exhibits that place Truman's presidency in historical context. While often recognized as one of the most successful Presidents owing to his leadership at a challenging moment in American history, the exhibit acknowledges Truman's low approval rating at the time he left office owing to the Korean War and offers context for how historical interpretations change over time. The exhibit also offers a chance to watch a video of Truman's funeral and internment from almost the precise location where it was filmed.
