I was always a fan of the first President Bush but let me say after visiting the library - I am even kore so. There are so many interesting details about his life that I never knew that shaped him into becoming one of our greatest presidents.

This is a well done library with a lot of family history for the Bush clan. A lovely setting if you get out and walk around after your visit. Very friendly staff. I found the video tour a little annoying as there aren't headphones so you hear people's tours as you are trying to watch other videos. The DaVinci exhibit is also awesome (though a little odd in this setting)

I really love presidential history and have visited several of the Presidential Libraries and Museums. Eisenhower and Truman's were my favorites until I visited this this Museum. The staff is exceptional, from the security staff to the volunteers and docents, everyone wants to make sure you enjoy you visit and are more than willing to assist your. This museum like most Presidential Museums has a replica of the Oval Office. What sets this one apart is that visitors can actually go into the office and take photos. Museum Volunteers will even take your photo with your camera while you are sitting at the presidents desk. The events of 9-11 defined Presidents Bush's time in office and there are a number of exhibits and artifacts on display. This is an outstanding museum and if you find yourself in the College Station Area you should make time to visit. Personally I spend a little over 4-hours here and enjoyed every minute.
