The locals I spoke to refer to the Clinton Library as "the trailer on stilts", and one look will tell you why. Don't let the outward appearance discourage you from going in. After going through the metal detector (sigh) and purchasing a ticket you can travel back through recent history. The library is very interactive and hands on. There is a room set up like the cabinet room where you'll learn the rationale for which cabinet member gets to sit closest to the President. Interestingly, the table in this room is actually the one that was used in the Nixon administration. There are displays set up for each year of the Clinton presidency. Yes, Monica is mentioned. No, the blue dress is not there. There is also an oval office set up like the oval office was set up when Clinton was President, as well as a lot of memorabilia from the childhoods of Bill and Hillary. The library is right beside the Arkansas River and area surrounding it is a park. There's a free shuttle that runs from several of the downtown hotels, and there is also some free parking available.
