I just love Dubya! Its pretty neat to know that this man is from my home town. He is one of the best Presidents in my book! Don't let the Media depict his character. research his history and discover for yourself. Dubya is the real deal!

Cool little stop. Charming 50s house where 2 presidents lived. The place is completely furnished with period pieces. Even the dog house in backyard. Interesting piece of history.

It's a great stop if you are in the area. The house has been restored to the time The Bush family lived there. You get a guided tour inside the residence.

Home is impeccably restored. One can picture a young George W with his toy train. The guide was thorough and had interesting stories we never heard before. We recommend a stop if you are in the area. Good for children, too.

A childhood home of George Bush, this Memorial and historical place demonstrates the modest beginnings of George W Bush as well as the modest beginnings of George H & Barbara Bush while a young family in Midland. Everything has been recreated to keep its historical accuracy and charm.

This is a cute little house in older Midland. It's not a bit fancy. The docents are fabulous and do a great job of telling you all about that era and about the Bushes at that time. It's worth a quick visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the George W. Bush childhood home. The house has been restored to its 1950s state. As we both grew up during that time period, it was fun to see the appliances, toys, and furniture that we remember from our youth. We came to understand much better the Bush family and the upbringing that they provided for... More

My husband and I made a quick stop here on our way to New Mexico. Unfortunately, we were not able to take the tour as we were traveling with two dogs and it was way too hot to leave them in the truck for a bit of time.
