I really enjoyed the museum. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I wish I would have had more time. I could have spent several hours there. Really enjoyed the film too; brought tears to my eyes! Love the Bush family!

Very impressive place ... A must to see ... Felt very surreal ... Lots of information and well planned out for visitors. Would recommend without hesitation. Make sure you visit when in Texas.

We enjoyed going through the museum. It was an educational time for all. Our son is a history buff and we have take home to several presidential libraries. His goal is to see all of them. I hope I can help make that happen.

We went to this Library on a visit to Texas AM. It was very well done. There was even a scavengar hunt type thing for kids to do. We found a geo cache in the back of the grounds.

We had a chance to get out and see the wildflowers and stopped in for a visit. The library was very nice, a bit crowded too. It is self guided so take your time, use the audio guide and just be patient. Very informative, educational, and patriotic. I loved that they included activities throughout for young children.

The last time we had gone there my daughter was nine, nearly twenty years ago. This time, we had her seven year old son with us. The exhibits were fun and informative and very kid friendly. The gift center was an added bonus. A good time was had by all!

great staff!! they allowed us to come back the next day since we arrive half an hour before their closing. Tons of things to read (hard for a dyslexic person like myself) but overall we had a great time browsing around.

I had time to spare and how could I be on campus and not visit a presidential museum. The intro video was very informational the staff was great. The rain prevented me from visiting the future burial site of the 41st president. Overall the building is beautiful and a visit worthy of the discounted $7 admission. College students pay $3...

I have visited multiple presidential museums and wanted to see this one while in College Station for a college visit. The museum has a special exhibit right now on ranching in Texas that has some interesting facts. The Bush library goes through the family history and his extensive career outside of politics and then gets into his runs for Congress,... More

If you are near or around the main campus of Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas take a little time and visit this presidential library. The grounds are well kept and the architecture very "presidential". You walk through history with pieces of his life growing up in the northeast to his courage joining the military during WWII; flying 50+ missions... More
