Having now seen six of the presidential libraries, this library was my least favorite. Maybe that was because his claim to fame was the Gulf War. So president #41 is currently rating #6.

I enjoyed this museum as much for the volunteers and workers who know a lot about the history of President Bush as I did the actual presentation and memorabilia in the museum.

We were on our way to Waco and happened upon this library. We really enjoyed our visit. It is more of a museum than a library. We learned so much about this former president and first lady. A great day!
