What can I say? George and Barbara Bush are my heroes and I was thrilled to finally make it to his library. I spent 5 hours here as I wanted to take it all in. Loved having my picture taken in his oval office. Very interactive and I enjoyed the audio tour as well. The library is on the edge of campus and is beautiful inside and out. Very easy to get to and plenty of free parking.

I typically do not like museums. My friend and I decided to go based upon the great reviews and I am so glad we did! This facility is breathtaking. The exhibits are high quality and well kept. The staff is exceptional. We only stayed for about 2 hours, but could have easily stayed longer.

Excellent job of presenting the Bush 41 years. Located on the Texas A&M Campus, parking and access was a easy and the Texas A&M Campus is beautiful in its own right. Bush was a man of service, and the museum does a great job of bringing to light everything he has done. We thought the children's section was a wonderful idea and particularly liked the Camp David and Situation Room displays. Having served in the Kuwait war, I thought that section was particularly well done!

This was a nice stop for the family after a reunion weekend. I took four children from the ages 20 months to 9 years. They enjoyed it as well. The only negative critique I have is many of the displays talk. They talk constantly so it is a bit overwhelming when you are trying to listen to just one.

My husband, 17 year old son and I visited the library expecting to spend about 30 minutes here as we finished our tour of the Texas A&M campus. We ended up staying for 3 hours. This is a truly fascinating look at a fascinating man. President GHW Bush has had a unique life: from boarding school to WWII to Yale to Texas entrepreneur to Congressman, CIA, China, VP then President somehow finding time to be a great Husband, Dad, Grandfather and friend. Very inspirational for people of all ages.
