Enjoyed the replica of the Oval Office. Not a huge fan of Bush as president, but we were in town for another event and took advantage of being close.

If you’re into the history then you’ve come to the right place! Favourite part was to see the Oval Office replica and story behind it.

I really enjoyed this museum and presidential library. The layout is great and the displays were wonderful. Being a Military Veteran I appreciate the amount of stuff dedicated to the military and 9/11. Swing the replica Oval Office was cool as well.

Sorry for my delay in replying ... I thought I got an email with the question - not that I had to enter the site and find questions. You can walk in, but dependent on the day and have a fairly easy wait.
