A little off the beaten path. The grounds are extensive with multiple buildings to house the museum, library, childhood home and chapel. We were heading home when we planned to check it out. We needed more time to fully appreciate everything.

This is my sixth presidential museum and I have to say my least favorite. Even though it still has a lot about his presidency, did not talk much about his early life while growing up in Abilene. They are raising money to renovate, so not...More
