George W. Bush´s Library

The current US president, Barack Obama, and all his living predecessors (George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, H. W. Bush and Jimmy Carter) attended the opening of the George W. Bush´s Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas, Texas, on April 25.


Several presidents have established their presidential libraries in their hometowns. The 13 Presidential Libraries are not libraries in the usual sense.They house vast archives of documents, records, artifacts and other presidential materials to the public for study and discussion.


The previously-established libraries saw more than 1.9 million visitors in 2012. The most popular museum last year was the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, California, which saw more than 380,000 visitors. 

“A nation must believe in three things. It must believe in the past. It must believe in the future. It must, above all, believe in the capacity of its own people so to learn from the past that they can gain judgment in creating their own future.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt, founder of the Presidential Library System
June 30, 1941
