Wonderful place to stop and enjoy both the beauty of the location and the historical exhibits inside. This is a real gem and should not be missed.

Agree with other reviews, wanted to add a couple of notes. There is a shuttle that takes you to the Museum Store, a couple of shops down from the River Market, runs every 15 minutes. You can also have the staff at the store call for the driver to pick you up to return to the library. While we enjoyed the library, our little guys (age 4 & 8)enjoyed the trolley ride and riverfront park more.

Thought this museum was awesome!!! Would definately go back and see it. The theater that talks about him was actually pretty good. Most of the time those are boring!

Tip: Most people dont know this but when the Clinton's visit Little Rock, they actually stay at the Presidential Library. At the very top of this building you will see a small exterior. That was made into a suite for them!

This place is well-executed. Others have provided great run-downs, so I just want to echo the positive sentiments and add these thoughts:

I'm a political junkie, and went to the 92 Convention, and I spent about 4 hours there.

My wife is not the junkie I am, but is informed and curious, and was satisfied in 2 hours.

My daughter is 5 and would have been very bored. I think any child under 12 would not dig it, unless they have an unusual interest in politics, world affairs, or current events.

Gotta go. It's awesome.

We learned that each of the last 12 presidents has a presidential library - while the library itself is run by the Federal Archives, the Center is run (and was built by) private funds. This gorgeous, LEED-certified building features a detailed play-by-play of Clinton's eight years in office, a replica of the Clinton Oval Office, a miniature version of the White House, and a changing art gallery - it featured "Beyond the Veil - Work of Contemporary Islamic Women Artists" when we were there. What a great museum, no matter your political leanings! But I have to say - I do miss Bill!! The food in "Cafe 42" was as creative, intelligent and well-prepared as was the man's presidential career....A must-see on the Arkansas River!
