A very surprising experience. We've never view a presidential library before and we were pleasantly surprised. It is nice to see the presidents entire term all at once. It doesn't matter your political persuasion as the fact that we are all Americans. Nice to see the gifts given by each country and some of the personal letters. We will now... More

The presidential library should be on every visitors to do list in Little Rock. The museum is very insightful and provides a glimpse into history. The recreation of the Oval Office is fun for tourists of all ages.

Great way to stroll through the Clinton era. The presentations integrate a wonderful timeline that allows you to correlate world events to specific events during the presidency. The design of the facility is striking in that it is elevated above ground, and is particularly well lit by natural lighting.

And Bill Clinton narrates the audio tour. Beautiful museum and location. Restaurant is not open on the weekend--be forewarned.

We stopped for a visit while passing through. I am a huge history buff. Even thought I did not vote for this President, I still respect and appreciate the office and those who choose to serve our nation in this office and was not disappointed. My wife and I took the tour, had a fantastic lunch at café 42, then... More

Boy this museum/library was disappointing! We have been to three other modern presidential libraries (Truman, FDR, Kennedy) plus the fantastic Lincoln museum in Springfield and a number of smaller presidential centers, houses, etc. This was the least satisfying and least informative by far. What we loved most about the other sites was their treatment of history -they capture the spirit... More

It is exactly what you would expect in a presidential library. My two pieces of advice:(1) please do the 12 minute introduction video before starting the tour and (2) please DON'T do the self audio tour. Many of the exhibits have video to them and I found the ones in the tour more informative and interesting.

Regardless of your political view, this place is a must see. There is a $7 fee per adult, but worth it!!! You could spend hours looking and reading things. The park is gorgeous. I was very impressed with the hospitable employees, the information, and the building. This is a must see!

An impressive building, well laid out, and with a team of volunteers who will guide and talk you through the whole of the building. Details all things that happened during the Presidents two terms in a format that was easy to follow

gorgeous building, very enlightening tour, and humbling surroundings. Was raining when we were there so didn't get to enjoy the walking bridge over the river, but definitely worth a visit for the whole family (not small kids!).
