If you get the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend you take it. I left with a heightened respect for the Bush family and GHWB especially!

We’ve now been to all but two of the Presidential Libraries. Loved all of them, but not this one. Nixon’s also wasn’t great. The exhibits were underwhelming. Anyway if you’re going to see all the libraries, then you’ll need to do this one too. But...More

This is Number Five on our presidential library tour and it was one of the better ones we visited. The video is long but very good. I highly recommend you take the time to watch it all. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained.

Let me first say....although this is a very interesting museum, well done, I was most disappointed that when we paid our admission, our son who is a military veteran was not given a discount. To get that discount at THIS presidential library, one has to...More

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!

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.
