The mission of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University is to preserve and make available the records and artifacts of George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States. We promote civic literacy and increased historical understanding of our national experience, and foster a community of public service and volunteerism. We accomplish this mission by offering rich educational and public programs, original museum exhibits and access to our archival holdings. Bush Library and Museum Facts and Figures The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened to the public Nov. 7, 1997. The library's research room opened Jan. 20, 1998, according to Presidential Records Act guidelines. The library and museum is part of the George Bush Presidential Library Center at Texas A&M University, a 90-acre area on Texas A&M's West Campus that is also home to the prestigious Bush School of Government and Public Service, the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation, and the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center. The Bush Library and Museum is one of 13 Presidential Libraries in the National Archives and Records Administration's Presidential Libraries system. For more information about Presidential Libraries, please visit http://www.archives.gov/presidential-libraries/. The library and museum is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the preservation, research, and exhibition of official records, personal papers, and memorabilia of George Bush. The museum has a main gallery space dedicated to "The Life and Times of George Bush" and a changing exhibit gallery, the Ansary Gallery of American History. The first exhibit in the Ansary Gallery documented the life of President and Mrs. Bush since the White House, with memorabilia that included the parachute used in his 1997 jump with the U.S. Army Golden Knights in Arizona. Other exhibits that have been featured include: "Flexing the Nation's Muscle;" "The Longest Winter: Berlin and the Cold War;" "Christmas in the White House;" "Barbara Bush: An Extraordinary Journey;" "Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse;" "The White House in Miniature;" "Beyond the Moon: NASA's Continuing Mission;" "The Culture of Wine;" "The Heart Truth® Red Dress Collection and First Ladies Red Dress Collection;" and "Headed to the White House." The Bush Library and Museum's archives contain more than 44 million pages of documents, 2 million photographs, thousands of sound and video recordings, and other volumes of information documenting the life and career of President Bush. The library and museum's documents include George Bush’s vice presidential and presidential records, as well as scores of personal papers from his public service career as a U.S. congressman, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, chairman of the Republican National Committee, chief of the U.S. Liaison Office in Beijing, China, and director of the Central Intelligence Agency. The museum collection holdings contain more than 100,000 artifacts, including more than 3,000 of the gifts from foreign heads of state that George Bush received as president, as well as gifts that he received as vice president.
