We have been a number of times. The museum is free on July 4th but can get crowded. Special exhibits change so check the website for details. In the past exhibits have featured a scale model of the White House, trains, dresses worn by First Ladies and NASA exhibits. Regular exhibits alone are worth seeing. The kids can see what the Oval Office looks like, see presents given to the Bush's from other heads of state and climb through a kiddy area. Holidays also feature special activities such as fireworks on the 4th of July and an annual Easter egg hunt. But one of the cooler features is the classic movie night held once a month. These movies are free and include refreshments. To enjoy the refreshments such as candy, popcorn and sodas, you will want to go early to visit and chat with friends and family on the sofas outside the theater as food and drinks are not actually allowed inside the theater.

The museum is free for anyone on July 4th, so if you are local, it's a fun tradition, but can get repetitive/boring. As an adult visitor, I loved reading the story of the Bush's - they go into great detail. The kids enjoyed seeing the President's Limosine, the Oval Office replica, and the mission/conference room. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful, and were sure to point me to have the kids use the restroom first, as they're in the front of the building (note to parents of bathroom-frequent kids). Overall, I enjoy going every other year for free on the 4th of July.

It was an awesome experience. There was a lot to see and a lot to learn. It was a nice peaceful drive there and back.
