Following a two-year, $29 million museum renovation, the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum has reopened, and visitors are stepping inside to experience the astounding transformation. Visitor, media and critical reviews are unanimous: the all-new museum offers a world-class experience, setting a new standard for presidential libraries nationwide.

This monumental achievement was made possible by tens of thousands of Americans from across this great nation who share our belief that President Truman’s legacy is vitally important to the future of our democracy, now more than ever.

With sincere gratitude, we thank the following organizations, foundations and individuals who generously supported the Stay TRU Capital Campaign at the $25,000 level or higher.
