This is a wonderful Presidential LIbrary - beautiful, so much history, and you can spend hours wandering through and reading the history of this remarkable President. The parking is easy, and it was a delightful visit. I highly recommend a visit - worth a detour.

We were late arriving and only had 2 hours to tour. The short program they present at the beginning was educational. The displays were well presented and interesting. they have a gift shop but we ran out of time.
