We have visited a dozen presidential libraries and this one, like all the rest, was interesting and worth the time if you are in the area. Always fun to see what the oval office looked like during a p... read more »

While stopping in Little Rock for the night from a road trip, we made the drive down to the library from downtown, a very short drive. It was extremely beautiful here at dusk. I wish the library would have been open for us to go inside, unfortunately it was already closed. We did stroll the area and walk across the bridge. The views on the sunset from the bridge are amazing. The grounds of the park are very well kept. There is so much to look at there. The structure of the library is a sight in itself. I would recommend planning where you are able to stop by and see inside the library. But if possible also come back and just walk the bridge at sunset, it's too beautiful to not see. There is a lot of History from the Clinton era, and I feel like there is a lot of US history in it as well. I would make the extra effort to come back here if I find myself in the area and go to the library, so I would recommend others go as well.

My family drove up to the library from Dallas on President Clinton's birthday weekend. We totally loved the experience. We brought our 9 and 13 year old daughters and they loved it as well. It was very thorough and educational. We were able to participate in the guided tour and that made it a lot easier. We would recommend the library to anyone that wants to learn more about American & World history.
I enjoyed my visit to the museum. Very informative of the Bill Clinton era. Admission price was fair. They open late on Sundays, and they queues of people waiting outside for it to open. It is information overload. If you're a BC fan, then do it!
A must see in little rock! If you've never been to the white house, the library gives you a great replica of the oval office. Be sure to take the tour and be prepared to spend at least 2 hours at the museum. A lot of the staff are volunteers who are professional and very welcoming. Easily one of the best hospitality experiences we have had in all our travels!
It really is a partisan museum. The entire place is designed to talk about the Clinton's. I've been to other presidential museums and they actually talk about the world and other informative thing like a real museum, this was all about Bill and Hillary and how they did everything they could to help the American people, but the government always got in their way. I did like the oval office and cabinet table mock-ups; the only saving grace for the whole place.
