DALLAS (AP) - Open now for 100 days, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas has drawn more than 170,000 visitors.

Officials say that’s a pace to reach their most optimistic first-year attendance target of 500,000.

Former first lady Laura Bush tells The Dallas Morning News the museum performance has gone even better than expected. And she says she’s pleased to see the landscaping has taken hold despite the Texas heat and drought.

Museum and library director Alan Lowe says problems generally have been the result of the public’s enthusiasm. A parking attendant had to be hired to help visitors and ticket procedures have been tweaked. He says the many interactive exhibits at the museum have worked well.

The presidential museum at Southern Methodist University opened May 1.
