Presidential libraries and museums are national monuments dedicated to the memories of men who served as America’s commander-in-chief. There are twenty-five (soon to be twenty-six) presidential libraries and museums.

Following an introductory overview of presidential libraries and museums and their history, comprehensive entries of each site are arranged from George Washington to George W. Bush, with information included about the current plans for Barack Obama’s library. Each entry contains information on:

  • Location and history
  • Endowments
  • Opening hours, number of visitors, and other facts
  • Collections and permanent exhibits

This first reference guide to all twenty-five libraries and museums is a ready reference providing readers with quick and reliable information.
