Tons of interesting information and artifacts about President Bush "41". I particularly enjoyed the displays about his military experience, his political and government positions over the years, and events during his presidency. Even a fun display of 41's more unusual socks!

They show a brief movie about the Bush family. It was very good. Very interesting displays. I especially enjoyed the space dedicated to Barbara. I visited her grave as she was a great role model.

No review can do this justice as this was so awesome! This is a storehouse of information which goes into great detail of the family life of President Bush, as well as his WWII service before even reaching his political portions. The layout has a...More

This was our 7th Presidential Library and the first one where I felt an actual connection with the Bush family as regular people. Though both George & Barbara originated from patrician East Coast families they considered themselves Texans after their move there when George went...More

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is a great view of American history through the lens of George Bush. His life pre the Presidency was in many ways more interesting than his time as president.

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.
