The National Archives (NARA) has authorized the Truman Presidential Library & Museum to begin beta testing its new exhibition, a limited first step in the re-opening process.

We are inviting selected groups of community partners to experience the new exhibition and give us feedback before we open to the public.

Based on the best available information, we expect this beta testing to take about four weeks. As this phase nears completion, we will announce our official opening date and safety protocols.

“We are anxious to share the new Truman Library exhibition with the public, and this limited beta test is an important step in ensuring that our visitors have the best experience possible,” said Library Director Kurt Graham. “We appreciate your patience. It will be worth the wait.”
