Ultimate Presidential Libraries Road Trip

One great way to learn about our US Presidents is to visit the Presidential Libraries. We have had 45 presidents but as of 2018, there are 14 presidential libraries. We have been able to visit 3 of them so far, but of course, we are already planning our next road trip to visit another one of the Presidential libraries. If you love learning about US History and our presidents, this list of Presidential Libraries around the US will help you in your planning!

Presidential Libraries around the US

Our first visit to a presidential library was by accident. We were in Atlanta for a quick day trip and saw a sign for the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library. Of course, we weren’t going to pass up the opportunity to learn about President Carter with the family.

Our second library was on our New England road trip where we visited the JFK Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. This was a great opportunity to learn about the life and career of John F. Kennedy.

On our recent Midwest Road trip we took time to visit the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library & Museum. This stop also gave us the chance to walk through his birthplace home and visit his gravesite. We began our tour knowing very little about this president, but now when the kids hear their teachers talk about President Hoover, they have personal connections to this president.

Last summer we were able to visit two more presidential libraries – The Nixon Library and Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

The Presidential Library system is composed of fourteen Presidential Libraries. These facilities are overseen by the Office of Presidential Libraries, in the National Archives and Records Administration.
