We took the guided tour and the guide was not great. He spoke in whispered tones throughout the 45 minute tour so it was very difficult to hear over the multi-media presentations. About half way through he announced to the entire group that I looked bored and that I must not like history. I politely smiled and didn't respond. However,... More

We spent about 90 minutes in the Clinton Library and really enjoyed it. Wish we had had more time but it wasn't possible. One could definitely spend 3-4 hours here. The building is sited nicely near the river and good views abound from inside. The design is unusual but it works well to display the large collection of artifacts and... More

An excellent way to spend a few hours. Wish I had had more time. I have never been to a Presidential Library before (not from the US) so this was a new experience for me. Pretty one sided....but I guess that's the point.

What a great facility! We were so impressed with the displays and the staff. There were hundreds of Kindergarten students and the staff had them all thoroughly engaged. We ate at the restaurant and found the food delicious. Service was a bit slow but we enjoyed ourselves.

I took my high school students here as part of a Leadership workshop. It was enjoyable and educational. I think many of them ha been here before though. If you've been once it is fun to check out temp. exhibits, but probably not much else.

I've read some of the other reviews and was surprised at the unhappiness other folks' felt. We, too, really enjoy museums and this is our 7th presidential one. Though the Hoover was is our favorite, we really enjoyed it. It was was very brigh and easy to maneuver through, wide aisles, lots of items and things to read. I especially... More

We started by walking over the river on the bridge. It was a fun walk with pansies in all the baskets along the way. We liked the infinity pools in the front of the building but I'm not a fan of the building itself. It seemed to lack substance. I found the binders of the presidents daily schedule for each... More

We were looking forward to seeing the Clinton Library but were a bit disappointed. We had experienced the LBJ Library in Austin & I guess we were spoiled. The LBJ Library is wonderful. The Clinton Library felt cold, not temperature, but style. We missed the last tour & that might have made a big difference. We didn't know where to... More

Went here with other friends interested in going. The film at the beginning was interesting, and the exhibit on gifts was captivating but nothing new was really learned on his history. I wouldn't have a desire to go back.

My wife and I love historical sites, and always detour for presidential libraries. We find them inspiring and informative. Let me preface my review with the fact that I voted twice for Bill Clinton, and admired how much good he accomplished during his 2 terms. The library is in a huge building with absolutely no architectural character. Most disappointing, especially... More
