In a series of social media posts, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum appears to be righting a wrong. Apparently, a mother breastfeeding her infant was told by a security guard to take her activity to the restroom. We’re not sure if the mother complained or if the museum realized their error. Either way, we’re please with the out come. After all, museums are full of naked people.

Other Museums

We are in the process of asking other Dallas / Fort Worth museums their policy on breastfeeding.

The Dallas Museum of Art said that visitors are able to nurse at the museum. The DMA has two family rooms if the mother would like more privacy: one in the Center for Creative Connections and the other on level M1.

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art said breastfeeding is allowed anywhere in the museum. The Amon Carter will be happy to provide a private area if the mother requests it.

Klyde Warren Park does not have any breastfeeding policy.

The Nasher Sculpture Center supports a mother’s right to breastfeed. They offer both public and private spaces for family needs throughout the museum.

  1. On a recent visit to the Bush Library we were also offended by several of the Bush security guards–in the Oval Office, the hall by he restroom–We are in our 60’s and were treated like small children–exactly, exactly what to do and what Not to do–walk in one direction in the Oval Office–while children–not ours were then next running to the desk and taking it over–Oh–to us you MUST walk only this way. Apparently, they knew they could control us–in both situations! I believe new and better training is needed for all.
