We visited on a Saturday and there were a good number of people there but not too crowded. The outside is understated but the inside is beautiful and laid out very well. We enjoyed and appreciated the different sections of the museum, including the special...More

During our stay in Dallas, we decided to tour the George W Bush Library on the SMU campus. We had previously visited the George HW Bush Library at TAMU, so we couldn't help but make comparisons. Both Presidential Libraries are outstanding. We enjoyed very much...More

This was an example of a perfect presidential library. Engaging, enlightening, educating and illuminating! The exhibits are extremely well done and thought provoking. The 9/11 element is really well done and the entire exhibit flows very well.

Although not a fan of Bush’s presidency, the museum was very interesting & insightful. With lots to see inside, it allowed you to see the issues he’d planned to work towards before 9/11, because then everything changed. There was a great tribute to 9/11 &...More

If you are a George Bush fan then you should stop. Lots of 9/11 history and what happened before and after. You can also step into the Oval Office for a few pictures. You have to pay for parking or a short walk from the...More

Sorry for my delay in replying ... I thought I got an email with the question - not that I had to enter the site and find questions. You can walk in, but dependent on the day and have a fairly easy wait.
