Bush Library Exhibits: 9/11, War, Katrina, Recount

DALLAS (AP) - A tour of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum begins in a bright area representing his early domestic agenda. With one turn, visitors find themselves in a darkened room surrounded by chilling reminders of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
    
This contrast symbolizing Bush's abrupt shift in priorities less than eight months into his first term. It's among the most poignant exhibits at a museum that also chronicles the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, the Florida recount and various other events.
    
The George W. Bush Presidential Center, which includes the library and museum along with 43rd president's policy institute, will be dedicated Thursday. Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, and all the living presidents are expected to attend. It opens to the public May 1.
