Only the café is open
May 2021 • Couples
You can walk around the building still nice to see, but the library itself is closed. Café 42 is still open.

Exterior only...due to COVID
Apr 2021 • Friends
Unfortunately we only could visit the exterior. It was very well done. We were able to see the beautiful landscapes and walk by the river. Worth the visit.

This Presidential Library is Closed due to Covid
Oct 2020 • Couples
We tried to determine if this was open before we visited. Their website isn’t completely clear they are closed to the public. It appears they are closed if you plan to do research. So, we called the library. The voice mail indicated their hours of operation and did not mention they are currently closed. It would be helpful if the director updated their voicemail message to indicate they are closed due to COVID and clarify on their website that they are closed to the public due to COVID. We ran into other visitors in the parking lot assuming they were open too. Very disappointed we wasted time as very much looking forward to this visit.

not impressed
Jun 2019 • Friends
I’ve been to either a museum, grave, or some other site associated with about 20 of the 44 different presidents so far over the course of the last 5 years, presidential history being a niche interest of mine rather than a passive one, and this museum was one of my earlier ones to have visited and it left me unimpressed for the cost. It felt like a money grab. It’s nothing to do with how I feel about the Clintons(Bill actually induces few emotions, good or bad, from me.)

I thought he picked a good location in Little Rock with what there is to work with, but I think it was all too sterile. They had a chihuly glass exhibit at the time(this visit was 2015 I believe) and I felt like that was out of place and the space could have had better uses made of it. Maybe they have since then. I know that his presidency is still fresh, and they aren’t going to display Monica’s stained dress until the time I’m collecting social security, but I felt like there should be a more in depth examination of events or presidential actions/reactions at sites like this, and that was lacking here for me. It seemed heavy on campaign memorabilia .

Like I said, maybe that has all improved with time. I know the Clintons will be buried here one day, so I will probably be back in the decades to come, but not any time soon. The limo in the lobby was the coolest thing to me, frankly.

Enjoy a good museum
Mar 2020 • Solo
I'm not a huge Bill Clinton fan but I have been to several presidential libraries. The museum overall was what I expected with the exhibits. What was different about this library was the individuals working it. All of them, from the greeter to the cashier to the guides were so friendly. They made me laugh and joked around with me and I felt welcomed. The grounds are beautiful too.

Good display in modern building
Mar 2020 • Couples
Really enjoyed visiting the Clinton Presidential Library and revisiting that time period in history. The displays were well laid out and thoughtful. We particularly enjoyed the 90’s exhibit that showcase the culture of the times.

Interesting to know more about the Clinton s legacy
I had a very guided tour and lunch in the restaurant. The restaurant is very good.
If you don’t want to see the library, you still have lunch or diner here. Nice situated at the river

Nice overview of presidency and accomplishments
Feb 2020 • Couples
Worth an afternoon. Nice open layout. Easy to navigate. Despite remembering a lot of that era, it was great to be reminded of lasting accomplishments like FMLA.

Grounds are nice and the adjacent walking bridge over the river is quite nice for some exercise. The restaurant was good for lunch with good food, service and nice views.
