The museum’s core exhibits reveal the unique influences and challenges that shaped George Bush’s life and presidency, and frequently changing temporary exhibits present visitors new and interesting perspectives on President Bush, his life and work. Through artifacts, film, photographs, documents, music, sound effects and interactive videos, this special museum experience encompasses much of U.S. history since 1941. See a World War II Avenger Torpedo Bomber, a 1947 Studebaker, a slab of the Berlin Wall, and precise replicas of President Bush’s Camp David and Situation Room. Try landing a plane on an aircraft carrier, or have your picture made while seated at the desk in the replica Oval Office. In addition, a special section is dedicated to First Lady Barbara Bush and her efforts on behalf of literacy, AIDS awareness and prevention, and volunteerism.

The newest exhibit to the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is called "The Legacy of Ranching: Preserving the Past, Embracing the Future." Through a partnership with the Department of Animal Sciences at Texas
A&M University, this exhibit celebrates the historic ranches of Texas and their ability to adapt through changing natural and business environments. The commitment and innovation of the families who built these ranches have helped them to preserve their legacies.
The exhibit highlights these strong legacies and examines how livestock industries helped shape the state, from early Spanish Land grants to the present day descendants. Recordings of oral histories, an original video narrative, hands-on educational activities, 250 artifacts and a historic chuck wagon centerpiece are all included in this impressive new exhibit. Don’t miss the opportunity to share the legacy of Texas ranches with a new generation and learn about the sheer fortitude of Texas ranching families. Financial support for this exhibit was provided by Capital Farm Credit, Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Texas A&M AgriLife Research & Extension, and the Texas A&M Department of Animal Science.
This exhibit will be on display from March 6, 2017, through January 7, 2018, in the Ansary Gallery of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum.
