Make sure you get there before 2pm and have a meal at their really good, and sustainable cafe downstairs. The prices are reasonable and food local, a lot organic and tasty. The library you can spend hours at and not be bored. Then there is the whole outside walking areas that you can explore for hours....great place, inside and out.

What a wonderful place to see history before your eyes. The exhibitions change frequently so there's always something to see. A Restutant located on site so you you can send the whole day enjoying yourself.

Fans of Slick Willy Clinton will love this place where the displays would have you think he was one of our best Presidents ever. No direct mention of the Monica L episode though, go figure! Nice reproduction of the Oval Office inside. Even if you were not a fan of this president, the building housing his memorabilia is one of... More

I love presidential museums. Lots of colorful displays that humanize the man and his presidency. Well laid out, easy access, interesting architecture, as it juts out over the river.

I have been to quite a few Presidential Libraries and quite frankly, this one is weak by comparison. The standard presidential memorabilia is okay but most others have more. The traveling exhibits do not keep me coming back. Active Military is free but retired military is not.

Having an architectural background, I much enjoyed the building as much as the Clinton displays. It was a very nice visit. We did not stop and read everything (you could be there all afternoon if you wanted), but did get a good feel of all the displays. The Peanuts special exhibit was going on when we were there...one Chihuly remained... More

This is a huge building (allow a couple of hours at least), with many displays on the Clinton era, including domestic and world issues of the time. It also tackles sensitive issues like the Lewinsky business, but from his point of view of course.

I felt like I was at the Clinton White House! Everything was awesome! The prices on entry and souvenirs is excellent! You must get a photo in front of the Oval Office!

We took the tour (Larry was our excellent guide) and it was an insightful and entertaining tour. However I had visited before, solo, and I felt like it was very different when I entered on my own and experienced the audio layers as I moved through the exhibits. The audio design is pretty special -- you move through snatches of... More
