“I'm sorry but I expected a lot more given the location, history and how recent his presidency was”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

I have been to over 8 Presidential Museums, Sites, Libraries or Landmarks. The Ronald Reagan, Truman and Kennedy are better. Clinton barely better than Nixon's. Perhaps, the restricted space and configuration of the building impacted the set up? I'm thinking this site was not carefully planned and done as go? I expected so much more. I will agree as others stated a lot of unique and known things were left out. If Reagan Museum talks about Iran-Contra and Nixon talks about Watergate at their museums why can't Clinton Museum talk about Rwanda and Lewinsky and other things? The Shuttle to the Store/Restaurants was nice. WARNING: The Clinton Museum Restaurant is not open on the weekends! This should not be in your top five things to see and do but maybe in your top ten things to see and do. I would say no more than 2 hours max if you are a speed reader and into US History and Politics you could do this in 1 Hour and 15 Minutes.

“Interesting displays”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

This is a very well done museum that shows Clinton's accomplishments as President. It also chronicles the history of those eight years in an interactive and engaging manner

“Slew of information”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

There was entirely TOO much to see in a few hours. This exhibit was very well done. Plan on spending a few days checking this one out.

“A must see museum!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

What a lovely spot for this museum. Very pretty next to the river and bridge. We took our time and wandered around. There is so much to see, we plan on returning soon. The amount of documents is incredible. We read some of the daily agendas and they are amazing. Gifts to the president are on display. The reproduction of the Oval office was awesome. One of the guards told us Clinton comes to the museum occasionally and sits in his "old office". Sweet. Don't miss out on this piece of history.

“A must see while in Little Rock”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Not a Clinton fan, but I did want to see the Presidential Library. It is a beautiful building with wonderful architecture and fabulous woodwork. I enjoyed seeing the gifts people gave the Clintons. We paid extra for the audio tour and it was worth it to hear about all the displays.
