  • Just wonderful. Laid out in a logical format. Gives you a real insight into the man and everything that went into his life before he became President. He and Barbara are buried on the grounds.

  • Out driving in the countryside and decided to visit. This museum was much better then i had expected. It was full of informative tidbits about his life. The actual video footage of his rescue from the sea by a submarine is amazing. Barbara also has her own section. I enjoyed all the details. We walked around the grounds and the pond. It was very pleasent since hardly anyone was there.
  • Such a wonderful presidential library. My fifth grader and I spent about 3 hours looking at each of the exhibits. The exhibits really are able to transport you through time to imagine how life was throughout Bush's life. His time as a pilot in WWI, the UN, and the CIA were all done with great detail. We also enjoyed the exhibits on the Iraqi War - my son was able to better comprehend the elements involved and the decisions made the president. I'm glad we were able to visit.
