This was a great mix - an introduction to the one of the first families of Kennebunkport from the 1700's AND memorabilia from the First Family - George and Barbara Bush. Well worth a visit.

What makes this home significant is the furnishings are all original to the home. Other homes I've toured were restored and furnished with what could be foud of the period.

It is an interesting small museum for all things BUSH. It was nice to reminisce some of the press coverings of the George Herbert Walker Bush era. Recomend one stay for the short film. Very homey display and replicas of artifacts for sale.

You need to visit if you're interested in American history, architecture, interior design, furniture, and unbelievable family sagas. The DVD interview with George H. W. Bush you can watch afterwards was unexpected fascinating. We recommend this museum highly.
