We were mom/adult daughter touring 5 cities and Unexpectedly the two Bush museums were the highlights of our Texas trip, although our six days were loaded with activity.
I would highly recommend a visit, and this visit spurred a interest that my son now wants to visit all the Presidential libraries and museums around the country.
Then take time to visit the museum, filled with friendly and informative volunteers, as well as patriotic-themed gifts and items.
It's a really fascinating museum full of memorabilia from the war.

As a retired Marine Corps Infantry Officer and military history enthusiast, I have had the privilege of visiting many military museums and floating museums of this type so I tend to have high expectations.
