Totally enjoyed this Library, lots of history. I always enjoy seeing the Oval Office Replicas which seem to be in every Presidential Library.

I spent a few hours at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. It is near the Texas A&M campus and although it doesn't incorporate a birthplace, it does has a nice pond and burial site near the building. That is worth the short walk. Both the former president and first lady are still living as I write this, but... More

This museum is a great place to take in the full life of our 41st president. It does a great job of covering his journey to the presidency and the major events while he was in the White House. Regardless of your personal politics, you'll be educated and entertained by the time you spend there. You might even walk away... More

The kids are easily occupied with finding the dog houses in each area of the museum and answering questions on their kids page while the... More

Had a great time visiting this musuem. Actually we went noon time and it was really hot outside so going inside was so refreshing and cool. Someone met at the entrance and explained there will be a movie about the presidents life and will take 30-45 mins and then after that we will be free to go to the musuem.... More
