  • I loved the library. I especially enjoyed the exhibit on Womens rights. Wish I could have gone into the Oval Office exhibit without having to deal with a photographer there.

  • Beautiful facility with rotating exhibit items and photo ops. Even though we went during a busy event day (spring break season AND a private function) we didn’t have to wait long for security. And we read ahead of time about health & safety protocols. So, that helped. My little kiddos are 5 & 11 - both enjoyed the library and exhibits for different reasons. You’ll spend about 2 hours here and no matter what, you’ll learn something or see something new. I was impressed by the table setting and Bill’s saxophones. Yes, there’s heavy-hitting news and history to read about. But some of the lighthearted items really spoke to me this visit. Maybe it humanizes the office. I’m not sure. 5 stars now. 5 stars the first year it opened. And I’m guessing 5 stars when I return in the future, too.
  • We felt like the admission price was a little steep in combination with charging for a photo to sit in the replica oval office, but the photo is not obligatory and the facility was very nice and well-kept. I honestly wasn't expecting much out of the library, but was pleasantly surprised. I found the museum to be educational, thorough, and it had a nice mix of political and personal details to keep it engaging. We spent several hours in the museum and came away feeling educated and optimistic about the future of politics.
  • Neat place to visit. Loved that they had the Cadillac One there and Richard Nixon’s cabinet room table. I’m not a fan of Bill Clinton or Hillary for that matter but did have a good time touring the library. The lady there told us the Clinton’s stay on the top floor when they come for events which is kinda cool. Also, The Clinton’s will be buried out back once they pass away.
  • Price is reasonable. Sleek, modern building. Lots of memories of the 90's. Of course, it shows Clinton in the most positive light. No mention of Monica Lewinsky and other topics like Whitewater or the impeachment are glossed over. That being said, the exhibits are nicely arranged and it is a fitting tribute. My only beef is that guests are not allowed to take their own pictures in the replica oval office--you have to buy an overpriced picture package for that presidential privilege.
  • Tons of archive and documents. Vivid history of President Clinton and his administration. Really friendly stuff. Due to COVID, please make sure you bring either vaccine copy and wear a mask. If you can not show a phone copy of your vaccination paper, security will not let you in!
