  • A modern visual style museum geared toward children and those seeking a cursory review. Nothing critical and nothing really in depth. But, there's some cool stuff on display here and it's well done.

  • 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 love the LBJ Library which captures the character of the man who was LBJ. This library was a collection of facts and "stuff" that were overwhelming at times. Simple things like signage with letters LARGE enough so you can easily read them was not always the case. Captions for pictures and for gifts given to Clinton were so small you could not read them but there was plenty of room on the exhibit for better lettering. I mentioned this to a few volunteers and they kinda raised their eyebrows knowing it is an old complaint. Curators need to fix.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Really nice slice of history! The staff are really warm and welcoming. The restaurant had wonderful dishes to choose from. And while the articles in the museum are certainly slanted favorably, it is nice to read and see many of the items saved during the Clinton terms were excellent!
