A Nation Under Attack
Artifacts, including a 22-foot piece of steel from the World Trade Center and the bullhorn President Bush used to address the crowd at Ground Zero, highlight the memorial to the most devastating terror attack ever unleashed on American soil. The exhibit concludes with the War on Terror and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Interactive displays allow guests to see documents, videos and photographs covering this dark time in history.

Gifts to the President
When a President accepts a gift from a foreign Head of State, it becomes the property of the American people. And President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush received plenty of them, many of which are on prominent display in the museum.
In addition to these permanent exhibits, special exhibits and events are featured in the center for a limited time.
