  • You can walk around the building still nice to see, but the library itself is closed. Café 42 is still open.  more »
  • Unfortunately we only could visit the exterior. It was very well done. We were able to see the beautiful landscapes and walk by the river. Worth the visit.  more »
  • Architecture does not fit the area, antiseptic. Grounds are pretty and located next to bridge to NLR  more »

  • Agree or disagree with the politics of the President, the office should be respected. The design of this presidential library while small, is very dense and quite transparent in sequence of events that happened his 8 years in office. I most enjoyed being able to open a binder to a random day during his presidency and being able to view the day's schedule. If you are in Little Rock, this is absolutely worth checking out.
  • Interesting place to at least remember the 90s. Good exhibits and the people there are top notch. I especially like the fact that they owned both the good and bad parts of his presidency. The replica of the cabinet room and the Oval Office were neat. Lots of outdoor stuff to look at nearby as well.
  • About what you'd expect from a Presidential Library with memorabilia and information about the Clinton presidency including the First Lady. Staff very friendly. We liked the replicas of the Cabinet Room and Oval Offices. They also have exhibits that change-the one when we were there was on plastic and debris in the ocean. There is also a small bridge and the Library building itself has interesting architectural features
  • Came here on a Sunday, and I knew in advance this is only open 1 to 5. This a beautiful place, both architecturally and inside. Everything was in tip top shape with plenty of security and volunteers ready to answer questions. The washed ashore exhibition was a nice touch. Multiple displays very tastefully done, easy to navigate and understand. The only downside was not being able to take pictures inside the oval office. This was the only Presidential library I've been to where that was the rule, so I walked away with no pictures of the oval office 😭. You had to use their photographer and pay somewhere between 15 to 20 dollars for the photograph. Not a deal breaker but just an FYI. Highly recommended, despite your political views. Thanks for your public service.
  • Very nice museum to see the history and life of Bill Clinton. You could easily spend hours and hours in here if you wanted to see everything. Super big and lots of info. They have a model of the Oval Office inside that is super cool. Has some view nice views of the Arkansas River. Recommend for anyone visiting Little Rock, AR.
