Located on a 90-acre site on the campus of Texas A&M University, the Bush Presidential Library and Museum entertains and educates with interactive exhibits and an exhaustive collection of artifacts. Opening September 1, the new Headed to the White House exhibit charts the presidential-election process from primaries to inauguration with hands-on activities, role-playing opportunities, and animatronic babies to kiss. Visitors can try running their own campaign, create their own election news story, or tour exhibits and sculptures including Life and Times of George Bush, and The Day the Wall Came Down.
After posing for a stately 8"x10" snapshot in the museum's replica Oval Office, history buffs can peruse the library's presidential wares and historical hand-me-downs, including more than one million photographs and 10,000 videotapes. Meander through solid-gold palm trees, a Kuwaiti door from the Gulf War exhibit, and more than 3,000 gifts received from foreign heads of state, such as the president's lucky dice inscribed with his cabinet-meeting nickname, "Summer Rain."
