You can visit any time, but the National Park Service does in door tours only twice a year. Great way to spend an hour if you like history. Usually in April during Truman's birthday celebration, and then one Saturday in either September or October for the guided, informational tour. As always, National Park Service staff and volunteers, as well as Grandview Historical Society members were excellent and knowledgeable.
The old farm house was cool. We went when the parks and rec where there (2x per year). They had amazing amount of history to share (which made it way longer than I was looking forward to). You can go anytime of the year, just grab the brochure and call the number to listen to a recorded tour while walking around the outside of the house. It's almost worth making the trip if you're history buff, but kids will be bored out of their minds.
