We have visited all but one of the presidential museums and this was far and away our least favorite. The age of the exhibits accounts for some of our disappointment -minimal technology utilized and tons of reading. Much of the museum is focused on WWII...More

This would be a 3.5* if there was such a thing. Compared to the other Presidential libraries we have visited, the museum was lackluster. The house tour was good, but disappointing because they showed you so little. The grave site was probably the high-point; beautifully...More
