I enjoyed the immense way the Bush's helped people world wide. The Library and Museum opened my eyes to W's philosophy, convictions and sense of humor. The day the twin towers were hit and how W responded to it over the next several days and weeks gave me a renewed respect for him. The graphics and design layout of the museum is, in itself, beautiful. Docents were friendly and helpful with interesting facts and cheerful conversations. Watch the eulogy W gave his father. The Library is on the Campus of SMU, so a walk around it is a must!

When we arrived, I wasn’t sure we were really where we wanted to be because it was pretty deserted. The museum was very interesting with lots to see, some interactive exhibits and videos to view. Don’t bring bottled water because you must toss it out, however, by the time we finished, I was so thirsty. There is a nice cafe right next to the museum and the food is delicious. It was very cold inside, so bring a coverup.

We spent three hours touring the Bush Museum. It was very informative about the Bush family and his presidency. Decisions he made during his time in the office were well represented and explained. We left with a greater appreciate for his leadership and integrity during his time in office.

Easy parking and access. The exhibits are well done and have interpretations but encourage discussion and thought. As always, the chronology of world events associated with decisions made in our country was intriguing. Certainly worthwhile to visit

The building is beautiful and dignified. There are two sections, the main part (left) and a special (temporary?) exhibit on the right. The special exhibit had artifacts and information about the retreats of several presidents. Camp David, of course, but also Kennebunkport, and LBJ ranch. Both exhibits were included with admission. I enjoyed the main exhibit much more than I expected. There were so many artifacts (clothing, letters, 9/11 debris, ceremonial gifts, etc) that kept my interest. The main exhibit also showcased charity work by both Pres and Mrs Bush during and after their time in office. Best part: the replica of the Oval Office. The grounds are left in a natural (not manicured) prairie condition, which is reflective of Mrs. Bush’s values. I learned that from one of the many well-trained and helpful docents who were easily available.
