George W. Bush Presidential Library at SMU
Housed inside the Bush Center, the Library features a 20-foot-tall, 360-degree high-definition video wall; a full-size replica of White House Oval Office; and the original White House Situation Room, now the setting for a unique, interactive educational experience for students. Among the 43,000 artifacts held at the Library, the “Nation Under Attack” exhibit displays steel from the World Trade Center that visitors may touch, the bullhorn President Bush used to address the crowd at Ground Zero, and letters he received in the days following the attacks.
Conveniently located on the campus of Southern Methodist University is the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, which opened spring of 2013. The Library and Museum will provide you with an extensive retrospective of the presidency, history, and key issues throughout the life and career of George W. Bush.
