Bear with us on this one: The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum might not sound like a barrel of laughs, but it’s a thoroughly engaging and—dare we say it—enjoyable day out. A fascinating treasure trove of early 21st-century history (including a significant exhibit on the 9-11 attacks), it also includes an exact replica of the Oval Office, plus some fascinating insight into the Bush dynasty as a whole. The standout attraction, however, is the strangely addictive “Decision Points Theater,” where you sit in front of a Who Wants To Be A Millionaire-style screen and make decisions based on genuine evidence the President had at his disposal. After facing real-life scenarios ranging from the Iraq war to Hurricane Katrina, you’ll be surprised at just how ‘Bush’ you are.
