Very educational. I learned a lot. Plenty to see. To really see everything, set aside four hours to tour, but, you can see most of everything in 1 1/2 hours, as long as you don't stop to read everything like I did. Very friendly staff and volunteers. Cost effective. If you're in Little Rock, definitely set aside some time to... More

We spent maybe 6 hours here and could easily have spent another 6. For those of us who remember the Clinton years, this was a fascinating review of that period of recent history. It was possible to wander around and look at displays in all sorts of formats. Then, if something was of particular interest, one could delve deeper and... More

It was our first time in Arkansas, and we thought what a better place to check out. We had planned to stay for a two hours, and ended up spending almost four hours there.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the library. I felt it was a beautifully done experience. The building is "green" and the people are all volunteers who are happy to be there. Refreshing! We opted for the tour and learned quite a bit about the accomplishments of President Clinton. I enjoyed touring the personal parts on my own after the... More

We have visited 7 Presidential museums and this was our least favorite. The building was designed to create the impression that it's a bridge in keeping with WJC's claim his presidency was the bridge to the 21st century. There's more than too much WJC video and self-serving artifacts here. Perhaps the best part was, believe it or not, a Beatles... More

Don't miss the daily tours. One is at 11 and provides wonderful context. This place is very atmospheric and takes you into a detailed replica of the Cabinet Room and the Oval office. You can browse gifts and childhood items. The library layout is impressive and updates the library at Trinty college in Dublin. You can see items from events... More

We were in Memphis over New Year's weekend and made the 2 hour drive over to Little Rock to visit the Clinton Library. This was the fourth presidential library that we have visited. The library was easy to get to although the signage getting off of the interstate is a little confusing. Plenty of parking. Short introductory film narrated by... More

Thoughtfully arranged in s time sequence, this was worth a few hours of exploring, especially with a guided tour that not only explains how the library is arranged, but is factual regarding both Bill and Hillary from childhood to current age. You don't need to be a democrat to enjoy this tour.

The Clinton Library is located on beautiful grounds overlooking Little Rock & the river. We took a tour which we found very informative but a little long. The temporary exhibit was on the Beatles - a little strange for us! The reproductions of the Oval Office & Cabinet Room were fascinating.
