My visit was brief - just long enough to watch the intro video (which was very well done!), and visit the monument outside. But even my few minutes here were moving and informative. I'd love to return when I had more time.

Family, decency and honor are themes throughout the museum. Make sure you have at least 3 hours to see it all. Don't miss the introductory movie.

A must for all ages if you are in CS. My kids are 14, 5 & 3 they all had a good time here. The staff was very helpful and informative. So many very educational sections for every age, to learn and remember.

The George Bush Presidential Library & Museum appeals to all ages from a scavenger hunt and for the very young, to a realistic tour of Air Force 1 for a bit older family members to permanent / rotating and travel exhibits for the adults.
