George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum – Dallas


My 3rd stop in Dallas was visiting the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.


2943 SMU Boulevard
Dallas, TX 75205


Opening hours

Mon-Sat, 9am-5pm
Sun, 12pm-5pm
Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day


Here I also got to meet up with Ted who I hadn’t seen since high school some 27 years ago. I also got to meet his wife Trina and son Devin.


The library and museum gives you an in-depth account of George W. Bush’s presidency and persona.

The below representation of his Inaugural Address is quite inventive.


In the museum you can also learn about the events of September 11, 2001 “A Nation Under Attack”.

There is also a detailed presentation of life in the White House which includes a scale replica of the oval office. You can even sit down and have your picture taken. I have no aspirations or wish for that job, so no photo of me behind the desk!


There is a a cool emergency room where you can choose an emergency, listen to experts and decide on how to solve the emergency together with the rest of the museum visitors.




The museum is situated on the Southern Methodist University campus. I had a chance to walk around it waiting for Ted and his family. I was way early! Very impressive. Wouldn’t mind being a student here. Would have probably been way out of my budget though!

  1. Love the post. Never knew the library was on the campus of SMU. Since I’m a fan of college football , and historical things, could kill two birds with one stone here. The pictures are nice and it was great that you got to connect with your friend
