I was very impressed with the Displays of Presidential gifts and historical stories. I listened to a tour while attending a social event. There were so many interesting stories that corresponded to the gifts!

Whether you loved GW Bush or not, this is a very moving tribute to him and his family. The library has periodic special displays which are worth the return trips. If I say anymore, it will give it away. Worth the trip.

Very nice 2-3 hr look day GW's time. Low key, very intimate but "regular persons" view of the world from 2000-2008. Not ostentatous. Highly recommend it.

Response from Luke M | Property representative |
A typical visit will last 60-90 minutes per exhibit. For two exhibits, I suggest you plan for 2-3 hours.
Are the exhibits in Spanish or is there a Spanish tour?
