Second time to visit. Loved the Chihuly exhibit! My family and I are history buffs so we love seeing all the well preserved items of President Clinton's collection. The docents are very knowledgeable and help you appreciate this portion of history!

There aren't many Presidential libraries out there, but they have come to be major tourist attractions when built. The city of Little Rock hit the Presidential lottery when Bill Clinton decided to put his library there. While there is library filled with all sorts of records about the Clinton years, most people come to see the museum areas. The building... More

The layout could be a bit confusing as you have to do some zigzagging to see things. That being said once you get your bearings you proceed w/ few issues. A separate exhibit for each year of Clinton's presidency lines one wall w/ something of an overview of what was happening in the world and politics in general across the... More

The museum was not impressive, compared to other presidential museums. Don't get me wrong. There were some neat artifacts and facts about his presidency but it was two floors of basically empty space. For the size of the building, I was surprised of the lack of finesse on the inside. Glad I saw it but I won't be recommending it... More

I have been to four Presidential Libraries and Museums, I would rank this one in last place out of four. A lot to read very boring. But two items made it worth it. Clinton's presidential limo, and a replica of the Cabinet room.

*** Regardless of political party, DO see ALL the Presidential Libraries. They are a comprehensive overview of the era in which the President served. We've seen all but one & they are all treasures*** This is another excellent Presidential Museum. (We actually visited in July 2012 but somehow didn't review?) Great, comprehensive displays of the time period, with spacious areas... More

The building alone is very impressive along with the reflecting pools outside. When we were there the Chihuly art glass exhibit was there. It is amazing the forms that glass can be put into. Once we started our tour I was very impressed with the detail that was taken in everything there. If you know very little about President Clinton,... More

Everything was nice and modern looking but I expected more to see. A plus was the recreation of the Oval Office. A lot of space was used for a traveling glass art exhibit and I didn't see the connection to Clinton's presidency.

It's a LEED certified building which certainly adds to its importance on the Riverfront in Downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. Tour (self-guided or guided) includes the important accomplishments of Clinton's Presidency. And they don't shy away from dealing with the effort to impeach.
