Major Changes for Truman Library

Shutting down soon, be closed for a year with a major facelift!

The Harry S. Truman Library and Museum in Independence will shut its doors on July 23 and remain closed for approximately one year while it undergoes a multimillion-dollar expansion and renovation. Its last day open to the public will be July 22.

Library Director Kurt Graham said the project would create "a more 21st-century offering" that would make the museum "more of a destination" and help meet its core purpose, which is education.

"More people in the community and more people from beyond the community will come and enjoy learning about this legacy and this incredible story of a guy who comes literally from nowhere: A farmer from Missouri rises to be the most powerful man in the world," he said.

"That will likely never happen again," Graham added. "We will never see another Harry Truman.”

To date, the Truman Library Institute has raised $23 million of a $25 million funding campaign, the institute said in a news release. Most of that — $22 million — will go toward the expansion and other renovations including a new entrance and lobby, a larger store and expanded exhibition galleries. The 3,000-square foot addition will also include a private event venue spaces for offices, archives, storage and mechanical purposes.

That leaves $3 million for educational and public programs and the library’s endowment, which will each receive $1 million.

The state of Missouri gave a $3-million appropriation to the library for the project.

"It's just an incredible vote of confidence," Graham said. "This is Missouri’s only president and we’re just so delighted that the state is coming in to help fund a look at his legacy, because it's not just for Independence or just for Kansas City, it's for all Missourians to feel proud of the fact that 'Give-'Em-Hell' Harry came from right here."
