  • Although we are not big fans of the Bush presidency, we found this library and it’s staff particularly engaging. The library is very well staffed and there is always a guide about that can explain an exhibit or give you some insight into the background of a particular display. The recreated Oval Office was terrific as was the 9/11 exhibit. Overall a very worthwhile visit and one of the better presidential libraries we have visited. We give it four clams on the coveted Five Quahog Rating Scale.
  • We truly enjoyed the educational and informational visit to this museum. The entry price is a little steep, but it’s part of City Pass so don’t sleep on that deal. We spent a little over two hours and didn’t read every single thing. There’s a nice tribute for 9/11 and details of the days, weeks and months to follow. There’s a replica of the Oval Office which was neat to see. I really enjoyed the segment where Laura talks about true home side of the White House - they really made it feel like home which I have never really given much thought to. All in all, a really nice exhibit.
