Our first time at a Presidential Library and it was excellent. The quality of exhibits and items to view were incredible. I wish I had had more time to spend here. All Americans should visit.

We spent several hours wandering through the exhibits and learning about the Bush family and President Bush. There were several unique facts and pieces that I was unaware of.

Little disappointed in the size of exhibit. Expected a little more. That said well worth a trip. Well laid out and beautiful architecture.

We toured the library. Lots to see, read and watch. They do however need to clean the bench upholstery in the film watching rooms. It was very stained and nasty looking. Also, updates to historical dates needed. For example... President Obama and wife and President...More

This museum is filled with wonderful information about the president and first lady and lets you see them first as people and then great leaders of this country.

Sadly we had little time and the library/museum wasn’t open yet, but it was worth the stop to walk the grounds and see the sculptures, especially the horses rushing over the Berlin Wall. Such exuberance is depicted. I loved it! I want to go back...More

block out at least several hours to tour the library and museum. And if you are lucky, you might even see President Bush on site.

You might call Bush Library and ask them. They may know of someplace. We were there on 5/27/18 and it was extremely hot. At least 96 degrees- too hot in the car for humans and pets.
