I love visiting presidential libraries to see what the era held for those in office. Education for all ages! And an easy drive from many cities of Texas. 1.5 hour drive from Austin. But plan at least 2 hours for your visit. It takes time to get through security entrance - think airport security lines and then if you use... More

We visited the George Bush Presidential Library on a Friday afternoon in early October. The weather was wonderful and we were able to walk around the grounds. The library is very easy to find on the Texas A&M campus. Parking was plentiful. We entered and first watched the film about George Bush and his life. It is only about 18... More

This was our first visit to a presidential museum and we were not dissapointed. There was so much information in here - and the memories it brought back were overwhelming at times. I had forgotten many things about this wonderful family and this museum presented the senior Bush's life in a way that it was evident of the love they... More

A very informative tour as it gives real insight into the spirit that takes a man through war, creating a booming industry, becoming a politician, being an honorable president, to skydiving at age of 90.

Just as a presidential library museum should be, the Bush Library and Museum tells the story of President George H.W. Bush through his own eyes. Whether you are a fan of President Bush's politics, or not, you will learn something about his life and career from your visit. The whole museum is well done, especially the exhibit on the Gulf...

Visited with my 99-year old father. The docents were very friendly and helpful, anticipating our needs before we had to ask. The museum itself was well-laid out and very informative. Now I want to visit the George Bush Presidential Center in Dallas!
