UPDATE: We're sorry, but due to the coronavirus public health emergency, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is closed beginning August 9, 2021 until further notice. We will continue to respond to written requests for records at gwbush.library@nara.gov. Please check the Library and Museum's website for updates on our operating hours and status.

As the Nation's official record keeper, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) serves as administrator for records of the U.S. Federal Government. NARA's Presidential Libraries and Museums are repositories for textual, electronic, and audiovisual Presidential records as well as domestic and foreign Presidential gifts.

The Library and Museum features a wide variety of state-of-the-art interactive exhibits. These online exhibits and digital galleries give an in-depth look at past and present special exhibits, the permanent exhibit, and unique artifacts. Photos and videos, and documents hightlight eight years of American history, the American Presidency, and important issues of public policy. In addition, this section includes information and views of the Native Texas Park located on the building's grounds.
