This weekend we had the opportunity to visit the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas.
We learned many facts and read stories about President Bush’s career and family. There are thirteen Presidential Libraries currently open around the country.
- Herbert Hoover Library
- Franklin d. Roosevelt Library
- Harry S. Truman Library
- Dwight D. Eisenhower Library
- John F. Kennedy Library
- Lyndon B. Johnson Library
- Richard Nixon Library
- Gerald R. Ford Library
- Jimmy Carter Library
- Ronald Reagan Library
- George Bush Library
- William J. Clinton Library
- George W. Bush Library
Barack Obamas Library is expected to open in 2021 in Chicago.
One of my favorite moments about touring George Bush’s Library was how it gave a very intimate view of the person behind the position. Learning about the personal hardships that he and Barbara Bush overcame made them relatable to us as people and parents. I was very young when President Bush was in office, and in school we learn about his political career, but the library offered an insight into the man as a whole.
I look forward to visiting more libraries soon located right in our backyard in Texas.
