  • 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.

  • 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.
  • I visited the museum and was impressed. The memorabilia takes you back in history. I don't care if you're Democrat , republican, or other. If you're a proud American then you will definitely enjoy your visit here. I highly recommend you go.
  • 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.
  • Great experience brought me so many memories back when I came here for the first time, many years ago. I was in a 5th grade (school field trip)!!! Loved their staff, very helpful.
  • What I expected to see, very nice organized place, friendly courteous staff. Parking was free, admission was very easy. Dubya's library in Dallas should follow Dads example on how to operate, a library/museum.
