“the story of the United States in an extraordinary time”

The Museum at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum tells the story of the United States in an extraordinary time. Using artifacts, documents, photographs, and videos from the Library’s extensive collection, the 14,000 square foot Museum includes exhibits on education reform, the global war on terror, the financial crisis, and efforts to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS.  The Museum features a piece of steel from the World Trade Center, a full-sized Oval Office, and a Texas Rose Garden. Interactive features in the permanent exhibition include a Decision Points Theater designed to take the visitor “inside” the decision-making process and policies developed during the Administration of President George W. Bush.

The architectural signature of the Library and Museum is Freedom Hall. At a height of 67 feet, the Hall encases a one-of-a-kind, 360-degree, high definition video wall that orients visitors to the exhibit and depicts a montage of the 44 United States Presidents.

Additionally, the Museum's temporary exhibit gallery as well as the main lobby cases will present a variety of exhibits that complement the permanent exhibit and illustrate themes and subjects relevant to the mission of the Library and Museum. Three women of the Mae La Refugee Camp on the Thai-Burma border wove and gave this shawl to First Lady Laura Bush when she toured there in 2008.Courtesy George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.Throughout the entire permanent exhibit, as well as the temporary exhibits, the aim is to inform, to stimulate discussion, and to encourage engagement. The permanent exhibit was designed by The PRD Group Ltd. and fabricated and installed by Design and Production. Cortina Productions produced the films and interactive exhibits in the Museum.

The section of the museum that has the 9-11 events and aftermath...you will be in tears. GW was a great president no matter what the libs and media think. This is a must visit for anyone who loves him and believes he is a great man and was a great president.

Stopped by here the other day. Only had an hour to spare so I didn't want to pay the (quite expensive) charge to enter the main part of the museum, so just explored the lobby and accessible parts of the building. Seemed a little more like a Bush fan shrine than a historic library/museum, which is in contrast to some of the older ones I have visited. But then I suppose that makes sense given that this is still current.
