This library ranks as one of my favorite. We have visited Truman's, Eisenhower's, Reagan's, Hoover's and Lincoln's Libraries. I found President Bush's Library to be one of the best. The library covers President Bush's youth, military service, education, move to Texas and government service. You are able to see into the more personal side of the Bush Family and understand...

This was a very informative library and museum. I enjoyed my time there. It starts with an 18 minute video on the Bush family and what lead to President Bush's run for the office. The number of items in the museum is great and the sections set to the different posts he had through his political career. The is also... More

Honestly.. I didn't know what to expect from the George Bush Library. But upon arrival I was jaw dropped. Such a beautiful and fantastic history that you honestly wouldn't be able to get anywhere else. It has such a uniqueness about it , that non could compare too. I highly recommend checking this out!

As a local, we love going to the library to walk the grounds. It's a great place to see the sunset. I proposed to my wife at the fountain at the library. This is the most beautiful of all the presidential libraries. The tour is good and informative.

We have visited numerous Presidental Libraries & Museums. This was one of the better ones. While it does say a bunch of good things about the President (which is expected) it does a very fine job of discribing the events that took place during his time in office and some of the difficulties that he faced. The staff is exceptionally... More

Very appealing for a long afternoon or get lost for days in this place. Very clean and user friendly. Just remember, it is hot in Texas in the summer time.
