In the U.S., the museum of childhood, George Bush

April 12 2006

In the small town of Midland (Texas) with a rather unusual order yesterday brought together U.S. first lady Laura Bush, as well as the parents of her husband. Here they gathered to open a museum dedicated to children's age of the current head of the White House.

The main entrance houses 1412 to Ohio Avenue ceremony. This is where Barbara and George HW Bush moved from the cold north-east in 1951 to join the rapidly boiling at that time in the Texas oil business. Then George Bush was only 5 years old. It was here that his parents made a fortune, gave birth to two children. This 3 bedroom house they left in 1955 and moved to more spacious.

Half a century has passed ever since, but the house like new. Nevertheless, the initiative group decided to make it a museum, apparently to raise the falling popularity of the current president of Americans. Funds for restoration are not spared - it was announced that the restoration work will cost "only" at 1.8 million dollars, reported The News
