Activity Overview

The museum at this venue offers a fascinating look at the eight years when the 43rd president was in office, including a number of interactive exhibits, and an especially poignant section on 9/11.

Things to Do

Before you enter the Library there you come to a large hall that has a video presentation that encompasses 4 walls at the ceiling level showing all types of Americans and the jobs that we do - sports, jobs, activities, etc. It runs on the 1/4 hour and is well worth spending the time time watching it.

You'll enjoy a good deal of unexpected humor including a video of a presidential impersonator trying to teach Bush to say “nuclear proliferation”.

Visitors can get pictures taken in the well-done replica of the Oval Office.

The staff and docents are extremely knowledgeable about the library content. Displays change regularly and there are a number of small film viewing rooms.

There is a cute film narrated by the daughters; some fun stuff about the dogs; and some unbelievable jewelry and gifts given to the family and cabinet members by dignitaries from different countries.

The video tucked away in the corner just off the Oval Office is a must see showing some humorous scenes at The White House.

The 911 exhibit is both moving and powerful as you would expect.

George W. Bush Museum Insider Tips

  • The content is probably a little too serious for younger kids. Best suited for teens & adults.
  • No outside food is allowed, however, the Cafe 43 makes a great spot for lunch while visiting.
