Did not have time to tour the library, but walked through the gardens. So peaceful especially the Japanese reflecting pool with the waterfall and the lake that allows a view of the city skyline.

Need just over an hour to complete the whole museum. Plenty of enjoyable exhibits and don’t miss the intro film as it truly provides an insight to the man.

You can probably get through the museum in 1.5-2hrs. If you tour the grounds around it, it may take longer.
