 The about 226,000-square-foot center is located on 23 acres. The grounds include a 15-acre urban park that recreates a Texas prairie.

 The library and museum holds more than 70 million pages of paper records, 43,000 artifacts, 200 million emails and 4 million digital photographs. It's the largest holding of digital records of any presidential library.

The 14,000-square-foot permanent exhibit in the museum includes parts dedicated to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, the Florida recount and various other historical events.

 The Bush library is the 13th presidential library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. It's the third presidential library in Texas.
