The life and times of the nation’s 41st president are explored in depth at the George Bush Presidential Library & Museum on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station.
The primary exhibit at the Bush Museum traces the life of George HW Bush from his childhood during the 1920's through his service as a torpedo-bomber pilot during World War II and his business career spanning the decades between 1945 and 1965.
The exhibit concludes with a presentation of Bush’s public life, first as a U.S. Congressman and later as head of the Republican National Committee, Ambassador to the United Nations, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Vice President under President Ronald Reagan, and finally as President from 1989-1993. Throughout the museum, exhibits highlight the unique influences and challenges which shaped George Bush's life and presidency.
Artifacts inside the museum include a World War II Avenger Torpedo Bomber similar to the one George Bush flew during World War II as well as precise replicas of his Camp David and Air Force One offices.
Exhibits at the museum’s Ansary Gallery and the Fidelity Corridor Gallery rotate every three to five months. Although some of these exhibits feature artifacts housed in the museum collection, the museum also strives to bring traveling exhibits to the Bryan-College Station area.
