President George W. Bush was a man who served at almost every level a person can serve our country. He fought in WWII and served in many levels of government culminating at the presidency. I believe visiting presidential libraries is a must if your in the area where one exists. Unfortunately, they can be pricey, but there is usually something... More

Being a Texan, it was very neat to walk through the George Bush Presidential Library. There are so many interesting things located in the library and tons of information. It's a walking history lesson that is much more interesting than any text book. Actual artifacts from 41's years as president. It's very enlightening and a learning experience. Being a 41... More

Part of the Texas A&M University campus, the George Bush Museum was well worth a visit. The museum did a great job of introducing the man who was president, we learned a number of things we hadn't known about the 41st president among them his strong commitment to family and deep love for the first lady. I was surprised at... More

This museum was the most live-like I have ever experienced. The presidents life was described both from a professional and a private aspect. You were able to follow his life by pictures, texts, sound and memorabilia. There were whole rooms set up just as in real life. You could relate to the story and that kept the visit interrsting.

This library is a must visit if you are in college station. This was my first visit to a President's library and i was quite impressed. There are artifacts videos and information displays that tells you a lot of the then first family.

Enjoyed my visit to the library. Working in Austin. Pleasant drive over. The library did not disappoint. Always have been a fan of Barbara. Born the same year as my mother I see the similarities in that generation. The museum was very well laid out and inviting for pictures. Great place to take children as you can sit in the... More

It is unfortunate that College Station is so far off the beaten path (when I lived there, I liked to say we were 90 miles from nowhere). Consequently, most people miss out on the George Bush presidential library and museum. I've been a total of three times, and never get bored of looking at the various exhibits, some of which...

I had forgotten what a great man George Bush the elder is. The George Bush Presidential Library on the campus of Texas A &M University makes visitors feel like temporary members of the Bush family. You get to review the life and times of the Bush family through thoughtful displays. It's sort of like walking through a life sized Ancestry.com.... More

This was my first visit to the George Bush Presidential Library. It was a very good experience. It is patriotic but also shows the class and dignity that George and Barbara exhibited during their time in office.
