The Bush Museum is an absolute "must see" when visiting College Station. You'll learn about his family, his life, his career of service, and why he selected Texas A&M University for the site of the Library/Museum. The tickets are very affordable and the parking is FREE! Be sure and watch the brief orientation film at some time during your visit.

This presidential library and museum makes a special effort to offer interesting and attractive permanent exhibits but also has regular traveling ones to make return visits attractive. Replica of Camp David and of Oval Office especially interesting.

We stopped at the George Bush Library on our way to Houston. We were impressed with the grounds and appearance of the library as we arrived. The entry with its rotunda were very impressive. The self guided tour was very informative and showed us the man that George Bush is and what background he came from. The exhibits were very... More

The Bush library is one of the best presidential libraries in the country- I have been a great many. The exhibits are very interesting and are changed out on a regular basis.

I would heartily recommend the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library to anyone! It is truly a fitting, comprehensive tribute to the life of an outstanding American. The exhibit walks through the early life of President Bush, with special focus on his early military career. A plane similar to the one in which he was shot down is on display. There... More

This museum details the background and life of George H.W. Bush. They really detail his character and how that can be passed on to other generations. I recommend this place to anyone, despite political opinion.

This is a very nice place, a lot of information here that I did not know about George Bush. I would suggest anyone with a little time to stop by and go through this, I would say at least a hour depending on if you are really interested or not. If you are then maybe a little more than a... More

Great way to spend your afternoon in College Station. This museum is beautiful and well constructed. If you go according to the printed map, that'll be perfect. In our group, we have children between 6-9 and the museum kept them interested, all the way.
