Press Release by Katie Kardell January 10, 2022

DALLAS — The George W. Bush Presidential Center announced today that admission to the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum will be free on Jan. 17, 2022, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

Along with the permanent exhibit on the 43rd President of the United States, The Continual Struggle: The American Freedom Movement and the Seeds of Social Change by artist Brian Washington will also be on display in Freedom Hall at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.  

The Continual Struggle: The American Freedom Movement and the Seeds of Social Change, a collection that was 13 years in the making, documents all phases of the civil rights movement, a pivotal time in America’s ongoing fight to eliminate segregation and other forms of race-based disenfranchisement. The 25-piece exhibit uses visual art as a way of educating, storytelling, powerfully recalling an era of protests against injustice and inequality.  

The special exhibit – made possible by the generous support of our presenting sponsor, The Boeing Company – furthers the Dallas community’s ongoing conversation around diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

The permanent exhibit on the 43rd President of the United States includes steel from the World Trade Center, a full-scale replica of the Oval Office, and artifacts from President George W. Bush’s time in the White House.  

When you visit, don’t miss the surrounding Laura W. Bush Native Texas Park, which reflects President and Mrs. Bush’s love of native Texas landscape. Visitors can explore native Texas environments such as Blackland Prairie, Post Oak Savannah, and Cross Timbers Forest.  

Museum guests will need to reserve free timed tickets online. To do so, please visit tickets.bushcenter.org.
