All the Details

As part of the Blue Star Museums program, Texas' 3 presidential libraries, including the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, offer free admission to active duty U.S. military personnel, including National Guard and Reserve, and their families, starting on Memorial Day, May 29, and running through Labor Day, Sept. 4, 2017.

Visitors to the George W. Bush Presidential Library can view "Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors," a special exhibit that brings together the stories of U.S. military veterans who have served our nation with honor since 9/11 and their portraits painted by President Bush. Other museum highlights include A Nation Under Attack, the events of September 11, 2001; a massive 20-foot-tall, 360-degree LED screen showing multimedia clips blending art, history and entertainment; and the provocative, hands-on Decision Points Theater.
