I have visited several presidential libraries of both parties. It is amazing how they bring history alive especially emphasizing the milestones of major events. The Clinton Library is no exception in fact it has been my favorite as it represents my generation. The layout and method of presentation is clear and interesting. Parts of the library are quite moving in... More

Well worth the time spent. This was my first trip to a presidential library so I do not know how it compares to the others. I really enjoyed the history and the letters. Made me remember how well President Clinton related with the common person.

I am hooked! This was my first presidential library experience and I was stunned by the incredible collection of materials and how well they were curated. My favorite things were the gifts that people and other nations gave the Clintons while in office and the displays of how they decorated for all the Christmases. There was also a special exhibit...

I spent 4 hours here. I could have spent more. Information is presented thoroughly and factually. I would have liked a place to relax and rest a bit to get the energy to continue.

Never visited a presidential library so didn't know what to expect. We arrived about 20 minutes before it opened on a Sunday. The weekend was the 10th anniversary of it's opening. It was bitter cold and the greeter told us we had to wait outside until 1PM which was opening time. Once in there is a security check in then... More

Absolutley outstanding visit! Having never visited a presidential library I was not sure what to expect. Arrived just after opening on a Sunday afternoon. Greeter suggested the docent tour. Having about a half hour to kill before the tour began, my wife and I walked around just to get a feel for the place. Then, the tour began. It could... More

Just like any Presidential Library, it highlighted the positives and tone down the negatives. It you are a Democrats, you will be happy about what you see and If you are Republican you know there are more to the story. I am not a fan of Clinton but I thought I will stop by and see.

My husband and I were really looking forward to visiting the Library because we've been to several other presidential libraries and, frankly, we're presidential groupies! Although the library is very comprehensive, aside from a short movie on Clinton's life, everything else is a reading exercise. For such a new library, I was expecting a much more interactive experience. Any child... More

Located in the Riverfront area of Little Rock. During our visit there was a Dale Chihuly display of blown glass outdoors and indoors. We watched the 20 minute orientation film and walked through the archives. There is so much going on here, it was hard to absorb it all. I enjoyed seeing how the Clinton Administration was a part of... More
