Have visited several times as our daughter attends Texas A&M and is in the Corps of Cadets. Most recent visit was to leave a rose before leaving town after moving her out of the dorms for the summer. Beautiful place and museum.

We were visiting relatives in Houston but decided on a day trip to visit this library and museum. It did not disappoint. Excellent exhibits and beautiful grounds to explore. Please visit if you are in the area.

This museum was very well done. The stress of 911 was respectfully shown. The ups & downs of his term was thorough. The humor of the 1st Family was fun to see also. Takes 1.5 - 2 hours to see it all.

Great journey through the unusually diverse and preparatory life prior to the Oval Office. While he served only one term as CIC, the number of roles in which he served gives a fantastic perspective to an impressive span of our nation’s history. While there is...More
