Extremely well done. A friend and I spent the morning here. It is a great perspective on George W. Bush and his presidency. It puts things in perspective very well. If nothing else, the visit to the oval office is worth your time to go...More

Very well done. Displays and interaction displays were very interesting. Paced out you could enjoy it in 2 to 2.5 hours. Staff members were very informative if you had questions. Enjoyed the museum.

This is great for current history mostly. I enjoyed the museum. I wish I would have had time to try the restaurant. Big PLUS was getting to sit behind the actual desk in the Oval Office recreation.

Wonderful place to visit. Was glad that audio devices were available. Really enjoyed sitting at gravesites and reflecting on greatness of those 2 people and wishing there were more like them.

Was pleasantly surprised by this. Gives a good overview of what happened during the Bush presidency. And you can have your picture taken in the Oval Office.

This is an amazing facility. Allow ample time to spend there as you will become engrossed in reading all the information in front of the displays. You will have a better understanding of the job of being president.

For the most part, yes. A few displays may be "boring" for small children. There is a separate display area designed for children. Best to avoid the area concerning 9-11. A few photos may be too intense but this is a... More
