This library ranks as one of my favorite. We have visited Truman's, Eisenhower's, Reagan's, Hoover's and Lincoln's Libraries. I found President Bush's Library to be one of the best. The library covers President Bush's youth, military service, education, move to Texas and government service.
You are able to see into the more personal side of the Bush Family and understand their contributions to our country. I came away proud to have had President Bush as a president. If you are a history buff, you will enjoy the breadth of the information covered in the museum.

“Excellent Presentation of a True American”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The museum is very current in how the information is presented. All the latest from touch screens to videos. The information reinforced why he was the most qualified person to every become President. From his family growing up to his Navy service, college, Midland life, Houston and then his government service, all were presented. High recommend you visit this to learn about a true American hero, who jumps out of planes for his 90th birthday.

“Great Presidential Library”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

This was a very informative library and museum. I enjoyed my time there. It starts with an 18 minute video on the Bush family and what lead to President Bush's run for the office. The number of items in the museum is great and the sections set to the different posts he had through his political career. The is also a good exhibit on Mrs. Bush and her accomplishments.
