  • From the moment you pull into the parking lot, you can tell this is going to be an awesome experience. The grounds are well maintained, and the building has awesome architecture. Once inside you immediately feel the love this family has for each other. The history is everywhere and you can spend hours here. Nothing but respect for the Bush family and their service to this country. Thanks to all the volunteers who make it happen. The gardens and area of intermittent for George, Barbara and Robin are stunning. Highly recommended.
  • I have been going to this museum since elementary school (B/CS native). Every time I go, it is still as captivating as the first. I love how the tour starts with you getting a back story of how he and Barbara got together and their home life. I love all the artifacts and interactive exhibits. I cannot wait to bring my nieces to see, explore and learn! Fun for everyone in the family. I especially love that you can fish at the pond. I will continue to visit this incredible museum where the staff/volunteers are always friendly. Five stars!
