George W. Bush Childhood Home
Vacation Travel Guide

Midland showing a house and interior views

Learn all about the beginnings of the 43rd President of the United States by visiting the house he grew up in, now an engaging museum.

Although the George W. Bush Childhood Home looks like any other suburban house, it has a very unusual history. In the 1950s, this building once housed two future Republican presidents at once, George H. W. Bush and his young son George W. Bush. Pay a visit to this family-home-turned-museum to learn about the early days of this U.S. political dynasty.

George H. W. Bush moved his family to Midland in 1951 in order to set himself up in the oil business. At this point, no-one could have known that he would one day become the 41st President of the United States, winning the 1988 election. At the time of the move, his son George W. Bush was 5 years old. He too would go on to become president, being elected in 2000. See the rooms of the house restored to the way they would have looked when the Bush family lived here, up until the mid 1950s.

The museum is presented entirely as a lived-in home, with every part of it open to the public and filled with furnishings and exhibits. See George W. Bush’s childhood bedroom recreated exactly as it would have been when he lived here, right down to the toys and games on the shelves. Visit each of the rooms in the house in turn, and marvel at the detail in the den, living room, kitchen and three bedrooms.

Note how faithfully the property has been restored to an authentic 1950s style. Take in the elements that are really original too. Look for the genuine 1950s wallpaper that hung in the house during the Bush family’s time here. The pine paneling throughout much of the house and the cabinets and hardware in some rooms are also original features.

Visit the George W. Bush Childhood Home any day except Monday, when it is closed. To gain a better understanding of the museum, join one of the guided tours that run each day until the mid-afternoon.

"Great stay! Stayed here a couple times at this location and room is always good and staff is friendly.

Besides that no complaints. ..."
