Really enjoyed seeing all the family background for President Bush and his family - lots of personal photos and letters that delve deeper into who he is and follows through to how he led our country as the 41st President. Beautiful pond and rose garden out behind the library. I personally met the President and Mrs. Bush about 8 years... More

It would take several days to see all there is to see at this Library and Museum. My husband and I both appreciated the man George Bush more by seeing and learning more about him and his wife. This place is a must. When we are that way again we will definitely do a return visit. It is not a... More

A great place to take family and even kids. They get to sit at the Oval Office desk and if you bring your own camera you can take pictures of your kids in the "Oval Office"

This was the first of 3 Presidential Libraries we planned on visiting in Texas. What a great place to visit. We knew he had been shot down, but didn't realize it was after almost 60 missions. Luckily, he was rescued by an American Submarine stationed in the area. He & Barbara certainly had an adventure filled life, both in Texas... More

It is always a great opportunity to visit a presidential library. The museum was full of memorabilia. Everything from the limo he rode in to the plane he flew. Also had a great educational tour for the little ones.

I have never expected College Station has such an interesting museum about George Bush Senior. This was my first President Library to visit, I did not know about tradition to set up a museum for each president of USA. It will be interested to visit for those who are interested in history, politics, but also it has information about president's... More

He was definitely a well versed president and had many accomplishments. So well remember the start of the war in the mid east. The museum was done very tastefully and great interactive sites

It was a good visit. I learned a lot. I thought it was fun to sit in the oval room and take a picture in front of the presidents desk.

A really outstanding review of Presidence of George Bush. It was educative and yet very personal, rather like an invitation to visit the White House during the residency of this particular president. I would recommend a visit to anyone who has interest in history.
