We live the presidential museums. This one has nice grounds--the meditation chapel is lovely. They have a nice gift shop. Of 9 presidential museums that we have seen, this one is showing its age. I see that it will be renovated soon--that is great!

If you're interested in viewing artifacts in storage (assuming there are some that are not on display), your best bet is to contact the museum directly (visit the website for contact information). However, the grounds... More
