Regardless of your political affiliation, these libraries are chock a block full of the history of this Nation. This one gives you a strong sense of family. From his parents right through the grandchildren of theirs. The way these libraries are set up are amazing. It's not just reading script on a wall with a few photos. They are interactive, there are movies to watch, you can sit and have your photo taken in the Oval Office, there is a whole section devoted to Barbara and it just goes on and on. We spent 4 hours there and except that it was like a meat locker in there, we could have stayed longer. I had to leave and Nick was in there and hour and a half more than I was, but I spent my time going along the path that leads you to where they will be buried (their young daughter Robin is buried there) and there is a lovely pond and a huge sculpture of horses running over a part of the broken Berlin Wall. A beautiful setting.
