Loved being able to actually walk around in the oval office. Everything in the building is done with great taste. I came away with a great respect for the Bush family. The restaurant is 5 star. Make reservations

Library is not open to the public, they do not have books, it is mainly a museum for the public. Forget your politics if you did not vote for him, see his extraordinary life history. A good family man.

Enjoyed our tour of the Bush 41 Library. Nice exhibits. Took about 2 1/2 hours to tour but worth it. Friendly and accomodating staff. Highly recommend

Very well done museum Found a lot more about Bush as man, his life and his values. Gained more respect for him Seemed like a fair representation of his political life. More balanced than other presidential libraries

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...
