Dallas: George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum


George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is the newest of the national presidential libraries, telling the stories of the United States during the administration of our 43nd president. The Library houses the official records of the presidency, and the Museum is the repository for presidential gifts as well as other donated artifacts relating to the life and career of President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush. The permanent exhibition explores critical events and issues of the Bush Administration using artifacts, documents, photographs, and videos from the Library’s extensive collection. The 14,000 square foot Museum includes features such as a full-sized Oval Office and a Texas Rose Garden. Interactive elements 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. Temporary exhibits complement the permanent exhibit and illustrate themes and subjects relevant to the mission of the Library and Museum.

Map & Directions

Due to the low number of available parking spaces, it is recommended that visitors carpool or use mass-transit such as the DART - which has the Mockingbird Station located directly across U.S. Highway 75 from the Library and Museum and will have a shuttle running to and from the station to the facility.

On the north side of SMU Boulevard there is a limited amount of visitor parking in the guest lot across from the main entrance. Drivers can also park in any non-reserved parking spaces on the SMU campus and at the Mockingbird Station.
