  • Unfortunately due to the government shut down the library was closed but the grave-site was a short pleasant walk past a pond and down a nicely wooded trail. A very nice resting spot for the 41st President and wife Barbara along with their daughter Pauline who passed away in 1953. I had been to the library 10 years ago and loved it but my intent this trip was to pay my respects to the President, a good and decent man who truly was an American Patriot.
  • This museum is such an amazing experience to take in and I highly recommend for anyone to go. There is so much history there about 41 but also about Ms. Barbara Bush that they experienced in their lives of service. They left such a strong legacy of what it meant to live a life of service for others that I too left leaving inspired to help others. I recommend getting an audio guide from the front desk. They provide short stories read by the Bush family throughout the exhibit for a deeper experience.
