Went on a home game weekend. Get there early to avoid the tour bus crowds. Also, I learned a few things I did not know about Bush Sr.

This is a spectacular place to see and located on the grounds of Texas A&M university. It is easy to find and worth the walk around the grounds.

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.
