We’ve now been to all but two of the Presidential Libraries. Loved all of them, but not this one. Nixon’s also wasn’t great. The exhibits were underwhelming. Anyway if you’re going to see all the libraries, then you’ll need to do this one too. But...More

This is Number Five on our presidential library tour and it was one of the better ones we visited. The video is long but very good. I highly recommend you take the time to watch it all. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained.

You might call Bush Library and ask them. They may know of someplace. We were there on 5/27/18 and it was extremely hot. At least 96 degrees- too hot in the car for humans and pets.
