A comprehensive depiction of the life and accomplishments of President George H. W. Bush and his wife Barbara, along with personal memorabilia, stories, and videos that leave visitors feeling like they really know the Bushes.

I really enjoyed going to this library as I have been to the Bush 43 library In Dallas. It tells more about how how the Bush Family came to politics. There’s also a piece of the Berlin Wall! It was very informative & interesting.

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.
