  • We are not American, but we have seen all but 2 of the Presidential Libraries, and we both think this one of George Bush snr is the best of all of them. It is the most comprehensive coverage of this l...  more »
  • My visit was brief - just long enough to watch the intro video (which was very well done!), and visit the monument outside. But even my few minutes here were moving and informative. I'd love to return...  more »
  • While, not a great fan of some of the decisions he made during his time as president, I thought the Library did a good job of fairly reviewing his career. The museum spent a good amount of time descri...  more »

  • I walked from Miami to get here and I was treated very well my Anne, Grace and Margaret. The entrance fee is $9 unless your military or a student of A&M but I got a VIP pass for my efforts and I greatly appreciated it. If you are doing research you might be able to get a free ticket as well. Lots to see and learn here:)
  • Beautiful buildings and exhibits along with beautiful landscaping. Exhibits were well put together and interesting. Staff was very friendly, too! Got to see my grandfather's ranch listed in county ranch book in an exhibit they had in Summer 2017.
  • Simply a fantastic tribute to a great President but also patriot, family man and servant. Recommend to all. Takes 2-3 hours including grounds.
  • This is a great place to visit. Extremely well put together, clean, organised, and staffed by wonderful people. We enjoyed the museum, gift shop, and the grounds. Highly recommend.
  • Friendly staff, I enjoyed this place with the Dallas City pass! It was a little longer then we expected but very educational. I’m a millennial and I left knowing Bush in a entirely different light
