Excellent exhibits & displays. Tons of audio & video presentations. So much more to this man/family than the press gives credit for. Worth the trip to visit & spend a few hours touring this museum/library. Every thing is nicely laid out chronologically.

Was a pleasant afternoon looking back at Mr. Bush's presidency. It was laid out in an orderly fashion and easy to follow. The pictures and comments were very interesting as we recalled when the events actually happened. It is worthy of a visit.
