George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

George W. Bush Presidential Library is located in the Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas (around 37 miles from Fort Worth). It serves as the repository for textual, audio-visual and electronic records that are created or received throughout the Administration of the former president, as well as some other donated related documents.

The main purpose of the library is to be a cornerstone resource for the life and career of George W. Bush, and the better understanding of American History, and all the important issues the public policy was facing.

Anyone can use the Library’s Research Room. It’s not an obligation to be an American citizen, or to bring letters of recommendation. It’s required to be over 14 years old, unless you‘re accompanied by a senior, or have received special permission.

The research room is available every workday from 9 AM to 12 PM, and from 1 PM to 4:30 PM.

It’s closed on weekends and federal holidays.

At the beginning of each research visit, a researcher ID cards are issued. You must bring a valid photo ID in order to obtain it, and schedule your visit earlier.

You can photocopy some of the Research Room’s documents for a small fee if you want to bring it home to study it more.

The Library is also known for organizing student lectures and educational presentations, so check out the official website for more information on the timetable if you’re interested.

If you’re eager to learn more about the American History, or particular about the Bush Family, then this is a must see place for you.
