A bit pricey and only spent an hour but glad we did. The best part was the Oval Office. They would take professional pics or let you take your own behind the desk or anywhere. Very cool! The short video was worth watching as was...More

We absolutely had a blast going through this museum! It’s perfect for families since there’s an area where you can read to your kids and there’s an outdoor cafe. I personally enjoyed the exhibit tribute to the First Ladies. The staff are knowledgeable and we...More

I have been to most of the presidential museums, and this one did not disappoint. It is a little on the small side, but they have made use of every inch of space. Take tissues into the 9/11 area.

Display on 911 was worth the price of admission! The grounds are not to be missed either. The oval office was great for photo ops! Worth the trip. Go early and eat in the restaurant for brunch. The food was fantastic!

This is a lovely library and is a great look at the 1990's especially 9-11. The docents were overly helpful as they were around every corner and offered advice about things like how to use the revolving door!

It is a beautiful library on/adjacent to the SMU campus. The library and grounds are environmentally conscientious and the food on the menu in the restaurant is excellent and mostly locally sourced. If you have visited other presidential libraries, this one is somewhat like them,...More

They sell at the venue but if you can purchase the Citypass Dallas, it’s included on there along with the Reunion Tower, JFK Museum to name a few. I highly recommend the Citypass if you will spend time in Dallas and really... More

If you can't find BBQ in Texas, your not looking very hard. I always stop someone, not a student, and ask where do they eat? Its always the best way anywhere in the world of travel.
